LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Fox has named Kevin Burkhardt as its Los Angeles-based pregame host for Saturday baseball.
Burkhardt will remain with SNY as a field reporter this season for games that do not conflict.
He became a popular NFL announcer in his rookie season calling that sport for Fox this past season.
Steve Gelbs is expected to serve as Burkhardt's primary fill-in.
