Report: Rod Allen to work the majority of Tigers telecasts, barely

Rod-Allen 2

It was announced in February that Jack Morris and Kirk Gibson would be taking some of Rod Allen‘s duties as analyst on Fox Sports Detroit for the upcoming Detroit Tigers season. That remains true, but Allen will still be a part of the majority of the games, barely.

A “source close to the situation” told the Detroit News that of the 150 games telecast this season, Allen will do 79 games, Gibson will do 60 and Morris will take 13.

Those numbers of course add up to 152 which means that there will be a couple of games where they do a three-man booth. One of those games will be on Opening Day when Allen and Gibson work alongside Mario Impemba.

The plan is that Gibson will work more home games than road games so he is available to watch his son Cam play baseball for Michigan State.

Morris has a lesser load because of his commitment to call games for the Minnesota Twins.

During the games for which Allen is not in the booth, he will be working in the FSD studios.
