 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - John Kruk, a member of ESPN's studio team since 2004, will be Terry Francona's replacement in the booth for Sunday night telecasts next season.
Kruk will partner with Dan Shulman and Orel Hershiser, giving ESPN a new crew for the third straight season after 21 consecutive years with Jon Miller and Joe Morgan. Buster Olney remains as the crew's reporter.
Shulman and Hershiser were in the Sunday night booth in 2011 along with Bobby Valentine, who left to become manager of the Red Sox and was replaced by Francona, Boston's manager from 2004-11. Francona left ESPN in October to become Cleveland's manager.
