It appears that ROOT has dismissed Tom Helmer according to Helmer’s tweets. That was after Alanna Rizzo won herself a promotion to MLB Network’s staff. I will miss his post game antics as I participated in the post game celebrations a couple of times myself.
This was Tom’s post on Facebook about the situation:
Root Sports informed me today that they want to go in a “different direction” with the pre and post game show. That direction does no include me. I will miss each and every one of you. You made this job the best one in television.
