Cubs Broadcasters Len Kasper and Jim Deshaies Re-Sign Through 2019

Chicago Cubs News

The Chicago Cubs have a new contract signing to announce, and it’s a big one!

Well, it’s not on the field, but as far as the fans’ relationship to the team goes, it’s a biggy:


The Cubs’ television broadcasting duo of Len Kasper and Jim Deshaies have been working together since the 2013 season, when Deshaies came over from the Astros’ booth. Kasper joined the Cubs as their play-by-play man for the 2005 season.

Consistently ranked as among the best booths in baseball, the Cubs are fortunate to have Kasper and Deshaies, and I’m very happy to see that the gang is sticking together for three more seasons at least. They are thoughtful, forward-thinking, and often quite funny.
