Shulman readies for 'Sunday Night Baseball' debut

Dan Shulman, the new play-by-play voice of ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball,’’ said he “still is a little overwhelmed; it doesn’t quite feel real to me. Jon Miller did such an incredible job for 21 years. To be the next guy is a little intimidating.’’

Shulman grew up and still lives in Toronto, was 10 when he attended the first-ever Blue Jays game in 1977 and became a fan of the team and sport.

Still . . . isn’t this a little like having an American on play-by-play for “Hockey Night Canada?’’

“I honestly don’t know what percentage of my peers or viewers know I’m Canadian,’’ Shulman said. “Some people know and they’re over it.’’
