ATLANTA – Former Atlanta Braves outfielder Jeff Francoeur will join the FOX Sports South and FOX Sports Southeast broadcast team for select games during the 2017 MLB regular season. Francoeur will make his debut as an analyst on Braves LIVE! on Monday, June 5, at 7:00 p.m. ET, prior to the Braves’ home game against the Philadelphia Phillies at 7:30 p.m. ET. Braves LIVE! will originate from the FOX Sports set located on the plaza in the heart of The Battery Atlanta.
“We are excited to add Jeff to our Braves telecasts on FOX Sports,” said FOX Sports South Executive Producer Randy Stephens. “He has the knowledge, experience and personality to be a first class broadcaster and, as an Atlanta native, he knows firsthand what the Braves mean to the community.”
A 12-year MLB veteran, Francoeur was selected by Atlanta in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2002 MLB Draft and spent six seasons (2005-09, 2016) with the Braves, winning a Gold Glove in 2007. Francoeur retired following the 2016 season with 160 career home runs.
This season, FOX Sports Southeast is scheduled to air 78 games, mostly Monday-Thursday games. FOX Sports South is scheduled to televise 81 games, mostly Friday-Sunday contests.*
