Scott Franzke (born March 6, 1972 in Dallas, Texasmarker) is a baseball announcer who currently works for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Biography

His career began as a studio host for the now-defunct Prime Sports Radio Network (now Fox Sports Radio) in 1994 which led him three years later to be the host of the Texas Rangers radio pre- and post-game shows 1997-98. He honed his play-by-play skills as the voice of the Kane County Cougars from 1999 to 2001, and covered the 2000 Summer Olympics for Sporting News Radio. He returned to the Rangers to reassume the pre and post game broadcasting duties and also filled in on play-by-play from 2002 to 2005.

In 2006, he came to the Phillies to take over those same duties when Tom McCarthy was hired away from the Phillies by the New York Mets, their National League Eastern Division rivals. Franzke worked the fifth and sixth innings in 2006 with Larry Andersen. In 2007, Franzke assumed more play-by-play duties, replacing Scott Graham in the broadcast booth, turning over pre- and post-game duties to Jim Jackson. In 2008 and the first month of the 2009 season, Franzke called play-by-play in innings 1-3 and 5-9 with Andersen, while Harry Kalas joined Andersen for play-by-play in the fourth. After the death of Kalas, Franzke assumed play-by-play duties for all 9 innings for at least the remainder of the 2009 season.
