Gary Thorne Quotables Thread in Orioles Talk Posted May 29, 2013 Gary Thorne not only does Orioles broadcast, but he also does LLWS, College Hockey, NHL, and I think baseball games for ESPN. Doing all that, I'm sure he has to maintain an objective point of view and I think it carries over to the O's broadcast, and I think that's why he rubs certain listeners the wrong way. Does he get a few names and pitches wrong? Sure. Does he get overly excited at opposing teams homeruns? Maybe. But for the most part he does a really good job. And we're actually lucky to have him as an announcer.
