Schmidt to serve as broadcaster for Saturday and Sunday home games

Last season, the Phillies and Comcast SportsNet introduced "Sundays with Schmidt," with Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt sitting in on home game telecasts as a broadcaster.

Schmidt is expanding the role in 2015, as he will now be part of the broadcast team for Saturday and Sunday home games.

In having a broadcasting role, it allowed Schmidt to be in Philadelphia more often for momentous occasions around the ballpark. Schmidt is a regular attendee of the annual Wall of Fame and Alumni nights and was also in town when Jimmy Rollins passed him for the franchise's all-time hit record.

The Phillies legend has been spending time with the team in spring training as a guest instructor. 

The Phillies recently added Ben Davis to the broadcast team to take the place of Jamie Moyer, who left after one season. Matt Stairs, Tom McCarthy and Gregg Murphy are also remaining a part of the television broadcast team.
