Jon "Boog" Sciambi (born April 11, 1970 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American sportscaster for ESPN. He currently calls Major League Baseball games for ESPN Radio and formally with ESPN. He also calls college basketball for ESPN, ESPNU (occasionally), and ESPN Radio. He was a play-by-play announcer for the Florida Marlins[1] and Atlanta Braves[2] as well as ESPN Little League World Series.

Sciambi's nickname "Boog," is because he looks like former major league player Boog Powell.[3]
