NEW YORK (AP) - Orel Hershiser, Bobby Valentine and Dan Shulman will form the new announcing team for “Sunday Night Baseball,” ESPN announced Wednesday.

The network said last month that Jon Miller and Joe Morgan would not return for a 22nd season.

Hershiser, the 1988 NL Cy Young Award winner, joined the booth as a third announcer last season.

Valentine, the former Mets and Rangers manager, became a studio analyst for ESPN last year. He managed the Chiba Lotte Marines in Japan’s Pacific League from 2004-09. He said he had opportunities to return to managing this offseason but preferred to stay at ESPN.

Hershiser played for Valentine with the Mets in 1999.

Shulman has served as a regular play-by-play voice for baseball games on ESPN since 2002. He also calls college basketball with Dick Vitale.
