Longtime New York Yankees radio voice John Sterling is retiring effective immediately, the team announced Monday.

The Yankees will honor the 85-year-old in a pregame ceremony Saturday before they host the Tampa Bay Rays. He will also speak to the media before the game and visit the radio booth during the broadcast.


“I am a very blessed human being. I have been able to do what I wanted, broadcasting for 64 years. As a little boy growing up in New York as a Yankees fan, I was able to broadcast the Yankees for 36 years,” Sterling said in a statement. “It’s all to my benefit, and I leave very, very happy. I look forward to seeing everyone again on Saturday.”

Sterling called 5,420 regular-season games and 211 postseason games with the Yankees since 1989.
