List of current Major League Baseball broadcasters

The following a list of current (entering the 2014 season) Major League Baseball broadcasters for each individual team. Some franchises have a regular color commentator while others (such as the Milwaukee Brewers) use two play-by-play men, with the primary often doing more innings than the second man; Dodgers announcer Vin Scully does not use a color commentator and is heard on both TV and radio.
