Dexter Fowler is Joining Marquee!!!
Upon his announcement of retirement from baseball yesterday, Dexter Fowler suggested that we should all wait for what was coming next. I had my hopes it would be something like this …
Dexter Fowler is coming back into the fold and joining Marquee Sports Network:
HECK YES. I always loved Fowler’s attitude and energy, and anything to get him back connected to the Cubs sounds great to me.
From the Marquee announcement:
Marquee Sports Network today announced the addition of 2016 World Series champion Dexter Fowler as a studio analyst, primarily contributing to pregame and postgame coverage. Fowler will make his debut Marquee appearance tonight on Cubs 360 presented by Miller Lite at 6 p.m. CT.
Fowler announced his retirement yesterday following a 14-season major league career with the Rockies, Astros, Cubs, Cardinals and Angels. The outfielder played two seasons with the Cubs from 2015-16, serving as the team’s primary leadoff hitter and contributing to some of the biggest moments in franchise history, including his historic leadoff home run in Game Seven of the 2016 World Series.
“We’re pleased to welcome Dexter Fowler to the Marquee Sports Network team,” said Marquee Sports Network General Manager, Mike McCarthy. “We congratulate Dexter on an incredible playing career, highlighted by his integral role on the memorable 2015 and 2016 Cubs teams, and we look forward to being a part of the next chapter of his career.”
For reaction from Dexter Fowler, tune in to Cubs 360 tonight at 6 p.m. CT.
