Bill Walton set to join broadcast for Chicago White Sox game




 

Bill Walton appears to be having the time of his life. The San Diego native recently threw out the first pitch at a San Diego Padres game, and he liked it so much that he even did it twice.

Walton seems to be in the baseball mood this summer, and that is reportedly going to continue as he joins NBC Sports Chicago's Jason Benetti in the booth for a Chicago White Sox game next week.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Walton and Benetti - who work together on ESPN's broadcast of college basketball games - will have the call Aug. 16 as Chicago takes on the Angels.

Via the Chicago Tribune:

Everyone will be wondering whether Walton knows enough about MLB to be able to speak to it effectively during a 9-inning broadcast. Then again, staying on topic hasn't necessarily been part of Walton's rapport as a broadcaster, so perhaps it won't matter.

No doubt people from all over the country will be trying to find a way to tune in to that White Sox coverage on Friday.
