Signing on with Sportsnet in 2005, World Series champion and veteran analyst Pat Tabler has become an integral part of the network’s Toronto Blue Jays broadcast team. Working as an analyst for the Blue Jays for over 25 years, Tabler offers incomparable insight while covering Canada’s baseball team.
Prior to his time at Sportsnet, Tabler worked with the Blue Jays, serving as a broadcast analyst for the team’s Canadian media partners beginning in 1993.
Before stepping into the broadcast booth, Tabler spent over a decade playing in the major leagues, establishing himself as one of the games’ greats. Drafted by the New York Yankees in 1976, Tabler eventually made his major league debut in 1981 with the Chicago Cubs.
Following his time in the Windy City, Tabler made stops with the Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Royals and New York Mets before landing with the Toronto Blue Jays, where he won the World Series in 1992.
An All-Star in 1987, Tabler is best known to baseball fans as one of the game’s greatest career clutch hitters, batting nearly .500 in bases loaded situations. After 12 seasons in the majors, Tabler retired from his playing career following the 1992 campaign.
