ATLANTA - Chip Caray is headed back to the Atlanta Braves broadcasting booth.
Caray said Monday he was hired to be the team's play-by-play man on Fox Sports South and SportsSouth and he is expected to work about 105 games next season. The hire came three weeks after parting ways with Turner Sports.
The 44-year-old is the son of late Braves broadcaster Skip Caray and a grandson of famed broadcaster Harry Caray. He called first-round playoff games for TBS during the past three seasons and also worked a few dozen Atlanta games this season for a local Turner-owned station.
Caray is replacing Jon Sciambi, who left after the 2009 season for a full-time job at ESPN.
