NEW YORK (AP) - Baseball analyst Tim McCarver says he will step down from his position at Fox after this season.
McCarver said on a conference call Wednesday he had told the network he will not try to extend his contract, which expires at the end of the 2013 season.
The 71-year-old McCarver has worked 28 consecutive Major League Baseball postseasons on network television dating to 1984, providing analysis for a record 23 World Series.
In 21 big league seasons, McCarver hit .271 with 97 homers and 645 RBIs.
McCarver says ``it's time to cut back.''
