Orioles radio broadcaster Fred Manfra, who underwent hip replacement surgery in April, has targeted July 1 as his return date, broadcast partner Joe Angel said during today’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays on WBAL Radio (1090 AM).
In early June, Manfra told The Baltimore Sun’s Peter Schmuck that he would be out several more weeks after undergoing a second procedure May 19 to correct a displaced surgical pin in his femur.
“Everything’s going well,’’ Manfra told Schmuck. “A pin slipped, and I had a second surgery two weeks ago. Hopefully, this one will take.”
Mid-Atlantic Sports Network host Jim Hunter and former Orioles pitchers Dave Johnson and Ben McDonald have filled in for Manfra during his recovery.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
