NEW YORK (AP) — Baseball analyst Tim McCarver says he will step down from his position at Fox after this season.

McCarver said on a conference call Wednesday he had told the network he will not try to extend his contract, which expires at the end of the 2013 season.

The 71-year-old McCarver has worked 28 consecutive Major League Baseball postseasons on network television dating to 1984, providing analysis for a record 23 World Series.

In 21 big league seasons, McCarver hit .271 with 97 homers and 645 RBIs.

McCarver says “it’s time to cut back.”
