"Dan has broad knowledge of the game, an ability to articulate baseball's analytics and a conversational tone which will bring out the best in our analysts," said Norby Williamson ESPN executive vice president, production, in a statement.  “Pairing him with Orel Hershiser, who made great contributions in the Sunday Night Baseball booth last season, and the unique opinions and fresh perspective of Bobby Valentine, will make for a dynamic Sunday Night team.”

Born in Canada, Shulman studied at The University of Western Ontario. He joined ESPN as a basketball commentator more than 15 years ago.
