Adam’s commentary is a hit with baseball fans

In the 2021 season, the St. Louis Cardinals missed out on the play-off season by a whisker. The Cardinals left the season as they were defeated by the Los Angeles Dodgers by 3-1 in the wild card game. However, Adam did not go back home and is stunning everyone with his commentary skills.

Adam joined the FOX Sports broadcast backstage for the Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox ALDS Series. Fans have certainly enjoyed his stint in the studio.

The Cardinals’ star pitcher joined Adam Amin, A.J. Pierzynski, and Tom Verducci in the booth for the matches. Adam, who will turn 41 next year, is in the twilight of his pitching career. However, it seems like he has his next opportunity lined-up already as fans suggest a full-time role.

Interestingly, this is not the first time he is doing color commentary for FOX Sports. Back in 2020, he also made an appearance in the booth.
