Growing up in Memphis, Tim McCarver was a standout on both the gridiron and baseball diamond. After signing with the Cardinals in his senior year of high school, McCarver debuted as a 17-year old in 1959, beginning a 21-year Major League career that would span four decades.
McCarver became a full-time catcher in 1963 and excelled at and behind the plate. In 1964, McCarver was the World Series’ Most Valuable Player, batting .478 and leading his team to a dramatic seven-game triumph over the New York Yankees.
McCarver starred in two more World Series (1967 and 1968) before being traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in 1969. After brief stints with the Boston Red Sox and Montreal Expos, McCarver re-joined the Phillies and appeared in three consecutive National League Championship Series from 1976-1978. Early in the 1980 season, McCarver retired as one of only four players to play in four decades.
McCarver’s broadcast career started almost immediately with the Phillies after his retirement as a player. Within two years, McCarver was doing double-duty as the Game of the Week analyst and WOR’s everyday analyst for the New York Mets. After leaving the Mets at the conclusion of the 1998 season, McCarver served as the New York Yankees broadcast analyst for three years before serving the same role for the San Francisco Giants in 2002.
Over the past two decades, McCarver has worked as the lead baseball analyst for every network which has broadcasts Game of the Week and post-season games: NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox. He has broadcast sixteen World Series.
All three of McCarver’s books have been sports best-sellers: "Oh, Baby, I Love it," "Baseball for Brain Surgeons" and his most recent, "The Perfect Season."
McCarver is now completing his fourth year as the host of the critically acclaimed “Tim McCarver Show”. In April 2003, McCarver won his third consecutive national Emmy Award as "Best Sportscaster/Analyst," following a string of nominations over the past twenty years.
