Broadcaster Matt Vasgersian’s call of Tuesday night’s AL wild-card playoff game will be his last one in ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” booth.

The New York Post reports the veteran announcer, who also serves as an MLB Network host and the television voice of the Los Angeles Angels, has decided to step down from his Sunday night responsibilities.

“I decided to call it a wrap on ‘Sunday Night Baseball,’” Vasgersian, 54, told the Post. “I can’t do everything I enjoy with MLB Network and the Angels, while still being away for nearly 30 weekends a year.”
