Peter Gammons leaving ESPN

Thought I’d pass this along: ESPN just issued a press release announcing that Peter Gammons will be leaving the network after the winter meetings “to pursue new endeavors.” The release also included a classy statement from Gammons in which he thanked numerous people he’s worked with over the years at ESPN.

It’ll be weird watching ESPN’s baseball coverage and not seeing Gammons. If my TV is on and I’m in another room, the sound of his voice usually grabs my attention because he’s always got something insightful to offer. Anyone else sorry to see him move on?
