D-backs broadcaster Greg Schulte undergoing chemo, to miss games – Arizona Sports

Longtime Arizona Diamondbacks broadcaster Greg Schulte was recently diagnosed with a medical condition that will require chemotherapy treatment and a step back from his play-calling duties.

“Before the 2022 season, the D-backs and I agreed to a ‘home games only’ broadcast schedule,” Schulte said in a press release Monday. “That has nothing to do with my current situation. Now, in addition to missing road game broadcasts, I’ll be missing some home game broadcasts.

“I want to thank my family for their love and support, the D-backs, D-backs fans, and my broadcast partners for their support and willingness to cover for me while I’m away from the radio booth.”

Schulte has been the voice of the D-backs since their inaugural season in 1998. He was on the call when Luis Gonzalez knocked in the game-winning run in Game 7 of the 2001 World Series over the New York Yankees.

“I appreciate your prayers and privacy as I concentrate on my health at this time,” Schulte said. “I’m staying positive and hoping for a full recovery.

“I look forward to the day I’m back in the radio booth once again calling D-backs games.”

The D-backs are back in action Monday night against the Cincinnati Reds. First pitch is slated for 6:40 p.m. and can be heard on ESPN 620 AM and 98.7 FM HD-2.
