Dan Shulman’s Epic ESPN Radio World Series Calls

HOUSTON — Orel Hershiser, legendary pitcher and former ESPN analyst, regularly referred to colleague Dan Shulman as “The Voice.”

Shulman has wowed ESPN Radio listeners for 12 World Series and 24 MLB Postseasons with his immaculate timing, delivery, and penchant for calling historical moments.

During the 2022 World Series this week in Philadelphia, he added another milestone moment: Shulman described the Houston Astros’ no-hitter – just the second no-hitter in the Fall Classic’s history – in their Game 4 victory over the host Phillies.

Shulman, the local voice of the Toronto Blue Jays and Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame Jack Graney Award winner, succeeded Jon Miller in 2011 to become just the second voice of ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. It was a position he held through 2017.

“The Voice” steps away from his full-time national ESPN Radio MLB broadcasting role after this year’s World Series to focus on college basketball coverage via a multi-year contract extension with ESPN.

Above, hear Shulman’s description of the final out of the 2022 World Series in Houston. Below is a selection of Shulman’s other memorable World Series calls through the years as Front Row salutes an incredible run:
