Chicago Cubs telvision color analyst Bob Brenly stopped by the Smokies Radio Network booth on Sunday while he is in town watching his son Mike play with the Smokies.

Brenly has been the television color analyst for the Cubs since 2005, and teams up with Len Kasper on Cubs telecasts for WGN-TV and CSN Chicago. In addition to his television work with the Cubs, Brenly has worked three World Series, two All-Star Games, and numerous Division Series and League Championship Series games for Fox Sports and Turner Sports.

He was the manager for the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2001-2004, leading the D’Backs to a World Series Championship in 2001, beating the New York Yankees in seven games. Brenly played in the big leagues from 1981-89 as a catcher, spending nearly his entire career with the San Francisco Giants before a stint with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1989.

The Smokies Radio Network thanks Bob for stopping by, and looks forward to him visiting us again in Tennessee, and the audio is posted below from his visit in the fifth inning.
