Steve Stone is one of the very best color commentators in all of baseball. He will remain with the Chicago White Sox for the foreseeable future.

The Chicago White Sox have a lot of talent on the field. That much is certain but one thing that has always been the case is talent in the broadcast booth. We went from Ken Harrelson to Jason Benetti calling the game’s play by play which is a treat in itself. Now, we have more years of Steve Stone being the color commentator with Jason calling the games. This is a treat for all White Sox fans and fans of baseball in general.

Steve Stone had 97 appearances as a pitcher for the White Sox over three separate years. He went 33-35 with the team and had a 4.38 ERA. He had a tremendous career spanning over 11 years where he went 107-93. He was also a recipient of the Cy Young award as a pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles in 1980. He was also an All-Star and came in 9th for the MVP that year as well. He had a great career and now he will continue to bring his brilliance to the TVs of White Sox fans across Chicagoland.

What makes Steve such a special broadcaster is his knowledge of the game. He is the type of guy who knows what’s coming and can preview that for the fans at home. He can also detect what the right decision by any manager or player is and let the fans see if they will actually pull off the said decision. He makes it very interesting to watch the White Sox on a daily basis.

Steve announced the signing via his Twitter. He proclaimed it to be a “minor free agent signing” but we all know how huge this is for Sox fans. He has been the color commentator since 2009. He hasn’t really been there for any amazing moments but that is all about to change. The White Sox are going to be very good in 2020 compared to the recent past and Steve will be there to help deliver it to you.
