Former Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra, who retired as a member of the Red Sox before last season, will now call games with Red Sox radio play-by-play man Dave O’Brien for ESPN’s Wednesday Night Baseball telecasts.

Nomar joined ESPN last season as an analyst for Baseball Tonight, and even called a couple of games during the season. Despite his shy nature, Nomar has grown more comfortable on camera and should fit in right away.

In eight seasons in Boston, Nomar hit .323/.370/.555 with 173 homers and 669 runs batted in before being traded to the Chicago Cubs during the 2004 season. He played five more injury plagued seasons with the Cubs, Dodgers and A’s before retiring after the 2009 season.
