The Dodgers broadcast crew has a much different look this season. It seems like in every game, there is a different combination of play-by-play and color commentators. It even feels like the radio broadcast schedule is a lot more mixed up than last season.
Part of that has to do with the talent the Dodgers added this year. They hired Eric Karros, Jessica Mendoza, and Dontrelle Willis as additional TV analysts for 2022. Former first baseman Adrian Gonzalez joined the team for postgame and Jose Mota as another voice for English and Spanish radio.
It’s a whole new crew to go in with the existing members. Part of that was to cover Joe Davis, who is taking on a larger role with FOX this year. But the Dodgers also seem to be going less and less with Orel Hershiser. That has led to questions from fans all season.
The LA Times’ Helene Elliot reported this week that part of that reason falls on Hershiser. He wants to remain focused on some of his personal business opportunities.
But the good news is that Dodgers fans have very much latched on to some of the new talents. Dontrelle Willis has really impressed early on, and fans have flooded Twitter with praise and adoration for the longtime big leaguer.
Karros hasn’t exactly received the same level of praise from fans, but the former first baseman is still very much loved around Los Angeles. It’s definitely a new look and something that will take getting used to. But there is a lot of talent on this broadcast team.
