Chip Caray is the New St. Louis Cardinals Play-by-Play Announcer
The St. Louis Cardinals have found their replacement for Dan McLaughlin in the TV broadcast booth. Chip Caray is leaving his position as the play-by-play personality for the Atlanta Braves to return to his hometown of St. Louis.
MLB Network confirmed the rumors of the past few days that Chip Caray, the son of famous Braves announcer Skip Caray and grandson of the legendary Harry Caray will be the play-by-play personality for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2023. That's according to a source for MLB Network and has not yet been confirmed by the St. Louis Cardinals.
Chip Caray has been the play-by-play announcer for the Atlanta Braves for the past 12 seasons. His father Skip was a Braves announcer for decades until he passed away in 2008. His grandfather Harry Carey was a legendary Cubs announcer, but spent 2 decades with the St. Louis Cardinals until he was fired in 1969. Many don't remember that Harry Carey and the also legendary Jack Buck shared the broadcast booth together for a long time.
It will be interesting to see how the St. Louis Cardinals fans accept Chip Caray. Many Braves fans consider him one of the reasons they enjoy watching their games on TV. Let's hope the same is true for St. Louis.
