In a tweet early Saturday morning, Angels television play-by-play broadcaster Victor Rojas announced that he will not be returning for the 2021 season.
Rojas, 52, has occupied the television play-by-play role since 2010, succeeding Rory Markas, who passed away in January of that year and had been recently picked to take the reins from Steve Physioc. As he states in the tweet, his voice formed some of the most memorable calls over the past decade, including more than a few milestones for Albert Pujols and the rise of Mike Trout.
Victor has always been good to us, whether on the old site or here. In the early days of the 2020 season, he chatted with our Jeff Joiner about the state of baseball. Even though the quality of the team fluctuated over the 2010s, the broadcast tandem of Rojas and Gubicza never did, hitting “Big Fly” after “Big Fly” out of the park.

Light that baby up!
