Broadcaster Thom Brennaman, who resigned from his job as the Cincinnati Reds play-by-play man after he dropped a hot mic gay slur during a game in Kansas City, is officially rebuilding his career. He will now call games in Puerto Rico.
According to Cincinnati.com, Brennaman was hired by the Roberto Clemente League to provide play-by-play. The league consists of five teams featuring players such as Francisco Lindor, Edwin Diaz and Christian Vazquez. Brennaman will reportedly work for a streaming service provider, PrestoSports, to call games that reside behind a paywall.
“My family and I have decided that I am going to step away from my role as the television voice of the Cincinnati Reds,” Brennaman said in September. “I would like to thank the Reds, Reds fans and the LGBTQ Community for the incredible support and grace they have shown my family and me.“
It’ll cost you $10 to watch one Brennaman-called game, or $70 for an annual pass.
