This release from TBS:

TBS steps up to the plate on October 1 to begin televising the 2008 MLB Postseason. The network announced today it’s broadcasting roster for its exclusive coverage of all four MLB League Division Series (LDS) and the American League Championship Series (ALCS).

The play-by-play voices for the ALDS and NLDS will be “Sunday MLB on TBS” announcer Chip Caray, legendary broadcaster Dick Stockton, Boston Red Sox play-by-play man Don Orsillo and Milwaukee Brewers announcer Brian Anderson.

They will be calling all the action throughout the ALDS and NLDS alongside a team of expert analysts, which include Ron Darling, Buck Martinez, Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn and 16-year veteran broadcaster Joe Simpson, former NL Cy Young Award winner and current Braves pitcher John Smoltz and two-time AL All-Star and veteran analyst Harold Reynolds.

In the studio for the ALDS and NLDS, two-time Emmy-award winning host Ernie Johnson will be joined by Hall of Famers Cal Ripken and Dennis Eckersley as well as one of the top lead-off batters in MLB, current Detroit Tigers centerfielder Curtis Granderson, who will break down the night’s action and offer insight throughout the night. Also contributing to the ALDS and NLDS postseason coverage will be TBS MLB insider and Sports Illustrated baseball senior writer Tom Verducci, along with field reporters Craig Sager, Marc Fein and David Aldridge.

TBS’ exclusive ALCS coverage will be called by Caray (play-by-play), Darling (analyst) and Martinez (analyst), with an on-site studio team featuring Johnson (host), Ripken (analyst), Eckersley (analyst) and Reynolds (analyst). Sager will serve as a reporter for the ALCS, with an additional reporter assigned to cover the National League Championship Series (NLCS) to be announced at a later time.
