But not until after next season. 2018 will be his last season, limited to Sunday home games. Heh ... and he will never step into Wrigley again.

So he's decided to grab some bench.

It's not a popular opinion, but I'm all for Hawk. I appreciate the varied personalities of announcers.

Papers...business papers.

He gone!



Eventually anyway.  


I prefer sad Hawk over giddy Hawk even when they're not playing the Twins, but he does provide a unique flare for calling a game.  It won't quite be like watching a Cubs game without Harry or the Dodgers without Scully, but something will be missing for sure.
