Roger Manis

In this episode, we'll talk with Chip Caray, the long time television play-by-play broadcaster for the Atlanta Braves.

We'll talk baseball, of course. How might the game look as it navigates through the pandemic? What can we expect from the Braves? We'll go to the booth and discuss his relationship with his broadcast partners, and we'll take a deep dive into his game day preparation.

We'll also go down memory lane to his days as a Braves bat boy, and his distant relationship with his grandfather, Harry Caray, and his father, Skip Caray. Everyone assumes the dynastic broadcasting family was always close. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

Please enjoy this in-depth conversation with the TV voice of the Atlanta Braves.
