Longtime Twins play-by-play announcer Dick Bremer departing broadcast booth

Bremer will transition to a special assistant role after 40 years of broadcasting

The Minnesota Twins announced Tuesday that longtime play-by-play announcer Dick Bremer is stepping down from his duties in the broadcast booth after 40 years.

Bremer will transition to a special assistant role in the club's front office that allow him to continue to be an "ambassador of Minnesota Twins baseball through his storytelling abilities, while also remaining a key representative at Twins community and fan events" the club announced.

"For 40 years, I've been blessed to totally immerse myself in the game that I love for the team that I love,” Bremer said in a press release announcing the move. "In those 40 years, I broadcast 4,972 Twins games. Over the last year or so, I thought it would really be cool to make it to 5,000. Then, I thought to myself, how selfish would that be? A broadcast should NEVER be about the announcer. It should ALWAYS be about the game and those who play it."

"I hope in my final season, I proved that 'I've still got my fastball,' a goal I set when I started with the Twins in 1983. I look forward to the next chapter in my life with the Twins and thank Twins Territory for 40 incredible seasons! God bless," he added.

Bremer, a Minnesota native, originally joined the Twins broadcast booth from 1983-1985. After a one-year hiatus in 1986, Bremer rejoined in 1987 and has been the television voice to Twins fans ever since.

The team said an announcement regarding broadcast options and talent lineup will come at a later date.
