Tim McCarver is retired from doing national broadcasts for FOX, but the 72-year-old is staying busy and staying on television.

Dan Caesar of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that McCarver will spend 30 games in the broadcast booth this season as part of the Cardinals’ local broadcast team on FOX Sports Midwest.

McCarver began his playing career with the Cardinals in 1959 as a 17-year-old and played 12 seasons in St. Louis, telling Caesar: “It’s fabulous, a complete merry-go-round, it’s wonderful. Coming back to St. Louis after starting there some 55 years ago is obviously special.”
