And the fact that he brings so much knowledge to the studio makes it that much better, because he knows what he’s talking about. Monroe always brings the energy, from breaking down a hitter’s approach or from doing a one-on-one interview with a player or coach. They really should let Monroe have his own style segment, where he breaks down his wardrobe and gives viewers some insight on where he gets his style from.
When he was promoted to primary analyst earlier this year, he was filled with excitement.
“I’m thrilled to take on an expanded role in the booth this year,” Monroe said as he spoke with Bally Sports. “I’ve worked hard at my craft since I started here and am fully committed to this team. Another season of Tigers baseball on Bally Sports Detroit is right around the corner. Let’s go!”
