"As the longest-tenured member of the Phillies broadcasting team, Chris Wheeler will return to his club roots after stepping down from his role as a Phillies broadcaster. With 37 years of broadcasting experience, combined with his front office background where he began his Phillies career, 'Wheels' will take on a new role allowing the organization to continue to benefit from his knowledge, experience and dedication to the game. Additionally, Gary Matthews will continue to work with the Phillies bringing his exceptional background as a major league ballplayer, broadcaster and commentator to new roles at the Phillies."
Now, let's all rejoice! No more watching games on mute. It's much less likely there will be a 15-minute monologue about a bird or piece of trash in the outfield during a broadcast. And, most importantly, no more hearing Sarge talk like he's a Hall of Famer and best friends with everyone in the game, past or present.
