Cameron Maybin, the former Yankees centerfielder, is headed to the YES Network to announce 40 New York Yankees games this season.
Maybin played for the Los Angeles Angels, Houston Astros, Atlanta Braves, Chicago Cubs, Florida/Miami Marlins, Seattle Mariners, New York Mets, New York Yankees, San Diego Padres, and the Detroit Tigers over his 15 year career.
The North Carolinian accrued 72 home runs and 354 runs batted in with a batting average of .254.
He had a bright personality throughout his playing days and now gets to put it on display in the announcing booth.
Maybin last played for the Yankees in 2019. That year, he played 82 games, batting .285 with 11 home runs, 32 runs batted in, nine stolen bases, and 17 doubles. During the playoffs that year, he put up a .333 batting average, one home run, one run batted in, and two runs scored.
Maybin retired at 34 years old after playing 1,162 big league games. In a statement, Maybin said, “I am the man I am today because of this game and the teams that gave a young kid from Asheville, North Carolina a chance to be great: the Tigers, Marlins, Padres, Braves, Angels, Astros, Mariners, Yankees, Cubs, and Mets. To the coaches, agents, mentors and most importantly, the fans, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your support.”
I cannot wait to see Maybin on the YES Network this season!
