That was one short break for Tim McCarver.

The former major league catcher tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Thursday night that he is near a deal to broadcast about 30 Cardinals games this season for Fox Sports Midwest. McCarver retired from his position on Fox's national baseball broadcast after the World Series.

McCarver made his major league debut with St. Louis in 1959 and helped the Cardinals win two World Series titles in the 1960s.

The 72-year-old McCarver tells the Post-Dispatch that coming back to St. Louis is "fabulous, a complete merry-go-round, it's wonderful."
