Kevin Brown will be returning soon, according to the Orioles. Since Brown hasn’t been on television or the radio for a little over a week, the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network’s principal play-by-play commentator, who has been with the network since 2022 has been missed by the Orioles’ American League East-leading fan base.
However, a top Orioles official claimed Brown will soon make his radio comeback.
The representative told The Baltimore Banner, “We don’t comment on employment matters, but Kevin Brown will be back with us in the near future.
The last time Brown participated in a radio broadcast was on July 24, 25, and 26 during a series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Brown has missed eight games since the radio interview, with the exception of two games that were nationally televised on July 29 and July 30.
According to a person with knowledge of the incident, Brown was taken off the air after he made accurate remarks regarding the Orioles’ record versus the Tampa Bay Rays in previous seasons. Baltimore’s game notes, produced daily by the team’s public relations department, included the information. An on-air graphic accompanied the remarks.
Before the series finale on July 23 against the Tampa Bay Rays, Brown noted on-air, “The Orioles have won more games against them this season than the last two combined. “The Orioles have won three of the first five games at The Trop this season after winning three of the 21 games played there from 2020 to 22,” the game notes stated.
The first time Brown’s absence was connected to his accurate statement was in a story from the sports media website Awful Announcing.
Brown denied a request for an interview.
The specific schedules of a changing cast of characters were taken into consideration, according to a different source acquainted with the network’s deliberations. If you including the pre- and post-game shows as well as MASN’s television coverage of the game, there have been 22 distinct iterations of the MASN broadcast crew since the year began.
