Tony Schiavone Done with Baseball Announcing, AEW His Focus

Posted By James Walsh on 02/25/20


Legendary wrestling announcer Tony Schiavone announced on Twitter that his days of calling baseball have come to an end. Schiavone was the radio announcer for Atlanta Braves baseball in various ways, sometimes minor league affiliates, for the past several years. A fan asked if Tony would be able to call AEW TV during the summer due to baseball's full schedule and he amde the announcement.



It is not clear if Tony still will call the Georgia Bulldogs college football games which kept him away from All Out late this summer. Tony also has done college basketball production work. Again, no word if that is still going on.

Tony began working at Starbucks about 5 years ago in a move that surprised many. It was used as a chip to get Britt Baker over as a heel on TV and was referenced on the latest Being the Elite as well. Tony returned to wrestling for MLW in 2017 and called the majority of their first 50 plus broadcasts on BeIN Sports before signing with AEW in the late summer of 2019. He is said to be still part of the MLW family but has not done anything for the brand September.
