STAMFORD, Conn. – May 26, 2022 – Joey Votto and the Cincinnati Reds host Brandon Crawford and the San Francisco Giants from Great American Ballpark on MLB Sunday Leadoff live this Sunday, May 29 at 11:30 a.m. ET on Peacock.
Esteemed play-by-play announcer Jon Miller, the voice of Giants baseball since 1997 and the National Baseball Hall of Fame 2010 Ford C. Frick Award winner, will call this week’s MLB Sunday Leadoff game. Miller will be joined in the booth by Reds legend and broadcaster Barry Larkin and former Giants pitcher and NBC Sports Bay Area broadcaster Shawn Estes. Each week, the MLB Sunday Leadoff booth features local analysts from the participating teams. Jason Benetti will not call this week’s MLB Sunday Leadoff game due to a schedule conflict (calling White Sox-Cubs on NBC Sports Chicago).
A 2012 National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee and 12-time All-Star shortstop, Larkin spent his entire 19-year career (1986-2004) with the Reds. He helped lead the Reds to a 1990 World Series title and was the 1995 National League MVP. Larkin was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2008 and his No. 11 jersey is retired by the club. Larkin currently serves as a Reds analyst on Bally Sports Ohio.
A 13-year MLB veteran as a starting pitcher, Estes spent seven seasons with the Giants (1995-2001). In 1997, Estes was named an All-Star and led San Francisco with a 19-5 record and a 3.18 ERA. The Giants honored Estes with a plaque on the team’s Wall of Fame in 2010. Estes currently serves as a co-host on NBC Sports Bay Area’s pre and postgame shows and is a game analyst on select Giants broadcasts.
This week’s MLB Sunday Leadoff coverage begins with the pregame show at 11 a.m. ET on Peacock. NBC Sports’ Ahmed Fareed is the pre- and postgame host of MLB Sunday Leadoff and also serves as the in-game reporter.
Estes will serve as this week’s pre- and postgame analyst alongside Fareed. Rob Friedman, aka PitchingNinja, will also join the pregame show to provide pitching breakdowns.
