This Sunday, June 4th, the MLB Sunday Leadoff will feature a matchup between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates. The game will be exclusively streamed on Peacock at 1135 a.m. ET. Play-by-play announcer Brendan Burke will be joined in the MLB Sunday Leadoff booth by analysts Albert Pujols and Bob Walk. Game analysis in the MLB Sunday Leadoff booth is provided each week by announcers from the participating teams.

Pujols, who ranks fourth in MLB history in home runs (703) and second in RBIs (2,218), will make his debut as a game analyst this weekend. The three-time MVP, 11-time All-Star, and two-time World Series champion retired after the 2022 season following an historic 22-year MLB career with the Cardinals, Angels, and Dodgers. Over 12 seasons with the Cardinals (2001-2011, 2022), Pujols ranks in the top five in team history in hits, home runs, RBIs, runs scored, and total bases, and led the team to World Series titles in 2006 and 2011.

Walk, who spent 14 years as an MLB pitcher from 1980-1993, including 10 years with the Pirates, will be returning to MLB Sunday Leadoff after being an analyst on two Pirates games last season. He won a World Series as a rookie with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1980 and was named an All-Star with the Pirates in 1988. Walk currently serves as commentator on AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh’s Pirates coverage and is in his 30th year as a member of the Pirates’ broadcast crew.

Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen will also be mic’d up to communicate with the MLB Sunday Leadoff booth in-game. The pregame show will begin at 11 a.m. ET on Peacock, hosted by Ahmed Fareed. Fareed also serves as the pre- and postgame host of MLB Sunday Leadoff and the in-game reporter. Former World Series champion Nick Swisher, who had a 12-year MLB career, will serve as this week’s pre- and postgame analyst alongside Fareed.
