featuring Geoff Blum, Houston Astros Announcer
Geoff Blum returns for his 11th season with the Astros TV broadcast team in 2023, his eighth as the everyday color analyst for Astros telecasts. Blum, who retired after 14 Major League seasons as an infielder (1999-2012), made the transition from the playing field to the broadcast booth in 2013.
During his playing career, Blum had two stints with the Astros, totaling five seasons in Houston (2002-03, 2008-10). Over the course of his tenure with the Astros, Blum hit .259 with 228 RBI, 46 homers, 77 doubles and a .711 OPS. A switch-hitter, Blum was known as one of the top pinch hitters and utility players in the game, appearing at all four infield positions for nine straight seasons (2000-08). He appeared in the postseason three times in his career (2005-06, 2011). Geoff and his wife, Kory, have four daughters: Mia Lea and triplets Ava, Audrey and Kayla.
