Mario Impemba (born March 18, 1963) is an American sportscaster, currently the TV voice of the Detroit Tigers and the radio and TV voice of the Oakland Golden Grizzlies men's basketball team.
I'm with Mario Impemba at Joker Marchant Stadium. Lakeland, Florida. Saw Tigers beat the Braves 10-6.
It's a shame it didn't work out for him...
Went to play with a few failed prospects: Rizzo (SD), Russell (OAK) Fowler(COL), and Castro (CHC).. Poor guy
Is it named ‘Anti’ due to people with sight ignoring what�.. (via
some say he went on to win the NL Cy Young
Chris Bosio is MLB's best pitching coach right now.
evil brother plays for the Cubs.tearing it up...
There used to be this guy that pitched for the Orioles named Arrieta. He wasn't very good. Wonder what happened to him?
A 98-win team should not be wild card. Make top 2 each div be in a tourney, 1st round best of 3, beginning w/ doubleheader.
Sipp is a FA. Tigers should make him a target.,
The Astros closed out tonight's game with 45th rounder (Sipp), a guy waived 3 times (Harris) and a 28th rounder (Gregerson).
I wish & were announcing this game... baseball just doesn't sound the same.
freshly painted In my 9 year olds room.
you make the season for us fans when we can't be there at the park. As always, FABULOUS JOB!!!
I knew 20 years ago when you debuted with Mr. Starr you would be a great voice. Congratulations and good luck in 2016.
Already looking forward to next year with you and Thanks for all you do!
See you next year, Rod & I'm a fan in Vegas. I watch you guys, thanks to
great job Mario! Going to be a long winter without you and your team on tv!
Until next year Rod, it's been amazing listening to u & 👏🏼
Thank you Mario. You guys do great work and we learn so much from you, Rod, and Gibby. Have a great winter.
thanks, hopefully it's you and Rod next year.
Have a great off-season Mario. Looking forward to next year.
God Bless you & your family,Spend some time with the grandchild & we can't wait to see both you and next spring!
Thank you for making a tough season still very enjoyable to follow. You guys are the best!
Thanks you for always keeping it interesting, even during. Tough season.
thank you, Mario. Always enjoy listening to your broadcasts. ✌🏼️
lived loved laughed and learned. Thanks for your hard work.
Mario had a better year than the Tigers
i will miss your banter with and every night! Enjoy tho off season.
thanks to you Rod, Gibby, and Jack, we love watching. Counting the days to next year.
All will be quiet this winter without you and Enjoy the offseason and see you next year!
Thank you for entertaining and informing us all season!
Thanks for another year of quality commentating.
You're the man, thanks for keeping this rough season manageable...see you in the spring.
Thanks to you and for another great season! Looking forward to 2016.
We have the game on every night. We appreciate the job you do. Now what the heck are we suppose to watch ?
A gigantic thank you to and for bringing us another season of Tigers baseball. Two of the best in the business.
loved listening to you, Rod & Kirk. It couldn't have been an easy season to commentate. Enjoy your time off!
sorry I missed the playing here in Seattle..but I'm hoping they come back next year here in Seattle
.you're welcome,God willing I'll be there
Nooo! What will I do without my daily fix of Impemba
Thanks for making the 1000's of hours I watched during this season entertaining.
top notch production, night after night. How could we not tune in?!
once again, great job Mario to you and your Team!
Great season guys. U did your part. Games w/were the best.Gibby was top notch player,Rod is top notch broadcaster
you as well Mario, stay safe and healthy. God bless.
fans, thanks for watching this year. I appreciate you tuning in every night. Have a great winter!
& Incase you're wondering there are 186 days until
Ruining the 68 team ball is the saddest story ever!
Heard you guys talking about autographs, my uncle when I was 5 accidentally let Paws sign his over my Ernie's autograph
Hey look, it's bought and paid for shill admitting he's not allowed to criticize the team!
The interaction between Mario Impemba and Kirk Gibson never fails to crack me up
.talks with members of Military Veterans Program on Tigers Live!
.meets with veterans for his MVP program!
Red flag: Your rookie catcher takes it upon himself to embarrass your All-Star SS in public. If it's that bad, it's your job.
Red flag: Putting Rajai on the pine for long stretches after abandoning the running game. For example, not playing him today.
Red flag: When your starting pitcher is somewhere in the clubhouse even though you haven't removed him from the game.
Red flag: When a starter convinces you to leave him in the game and then pats you on the back with his glove (2014).
Red flag: Game management skills still in question. Two words: Jose Altuve.
Red flag: come north running, but get thrown out and abandon the running game. Terrible success rate. Confused.
Maybe Ausmus is better suited for a job upstairs. He's intelligent, but his cerebral approach not what these needed.
This season is such a disaster, I can't wait until writes his book about it.
So Tram did better with a lesser team and got fired. What make Ausmus different? You can't play losing ball at home
.I'm with you. I prefer getting up at 10. 5 is waaay too early! 💤
also, have we ever discussed why McCann wears a turtleneck?
Every time Gibson is on, I learn something new. He needs to come back next year. You guys make a good team to listen to.
. Tell if he's looking for a red flag on Ausmas, he was just out-coached by Francona assuming Indians would bunt.
Really impressed with Gibby in booth, soft-spoken yet intelligent and thought provoking and with humor mixed in.
Just not appropriate for Gibson to discuss Ausmus' future when JV is working on a no-hitter. You should have cut him off,
agree with Gibby Tigers should keep Brad as manager
Let's go Tigers! ! Beat the Indians! ! Happy birthday to my son Jason today! ! 40th! Lordy! lordy! ! look who's 40
Mario I agree with both you and Kirk Gibson! Brad Ausmus has done an awesome job. Tjgers need pitchers, like Soria, lol
You mean there's a baseball game going on? Let's talk about which managers might get fired instead of Verlander's outing.
Thanks for focusing on what's happening with Verlander, rather than Kirk Gibson's editorializing.
How about equal time for those who want Ausmus fired? You want red flags? I'll supply them. Both sides, please.
Tell Gibby the opposite of modest and humble is Donald Trump.
You guys are being way too modest today. Gibby way to break the 0-for against the fans
Oh good! .& .are on today's broadcast. They know their stuff, plus they're funny.
I really hope it’s you and exclusively in the booth again next season. 😔
Best line from tonight: "Nobody called you 'Guy who cases the pitcher?' "
I see ya and I see ya Let's Go Tigers
Heading out to the game today? Bring along some new/used baseball/softball equipment to donate to and
Well, got to meet Paul Simon yesterday, while I met It's close, but I think I win.
The are 2-12 since that promo night. It's just bad juju to wear that green. As would say
Good company there. If you could have gotten him to sing "Me and Mario, down by the schoolyard?" EPIC.
Jack White is rocking my brother's company, Neo Tiger shirt!
as I pulled in my driveway coming from the game Mrs. Robinson on radio. Then I read this.
if they r not going to Fire Ausmus then what is he doing to change what is happening pitiful
ifTigers haven't quit on Ausmus than what would a team look like that has quit
I see you and being like Rock Stars :)
Well, at least the parts I can hear are great (other than the frequent results). Thanks for the great work!
How many pitches thrown in this unusually long game?
Mario how about getting me some tickets for my birthday on September 12 2015
I really enjoy listening to you but you use the phrase "no doubt" too often. It drives me crazy.
yay!! is back with The perfect pair of announcers! :)
he has been better in more recent starts against the Tigers, though
Mario Impemba and Rod Allen broadcasting games next year? A fan can dream, right?
Mario Impemba honored by veterans with appreciation award | FOX Sports -
Do you know what the record for the longest HR is? And by who please? Love JD's 467!! ⚾️
My good friend Jeff Smith from Grosse Isle is your twin!!!
Miggy hit the camera well earlier this season
did & forget just hit the camera well a few weeks ago? Amazing but settle down boys
CRUSHED that ball! Love it when drops the professional broadcaster style and just talks like a fan!
Didn't Eric Munson hit one on centerfield camera well roof, too?
J.D. Martinez hits what announce Mario Impemba says is the longest home run he's seen at Comerica Park. trail 5-3 in the 3rd
Now Mario Impemba with his nonsense about "What if they run five or six win in a row" and Rod being giddy. Unreal.
Earth to Mario Impemba: the are not "gonna run off 5-6 wins in a row." Haven't done it all year
Why do we care if Shane Greene's pitch count is high? He's getting rocked. If he pitches 9 innings, he'll give up 15 runs.
Games are so much better to listen to when it's n not no *** Kirk Gibson
Would mgt. really trade David Price? He's the only decent pitcher Tigers have this year.
Glad to hear it. Enjoy the day and the game tonight!
Hope you received my email I sent to the Tigers about your book Enjoyed it and thought you would find value in some feedback.
Cracked me up tonight when and Kirk couldn't figure out who was driving in the Miggy/Ajax pic!
what would Asmus hit for McCann but not Davis if he is playing the r\l natchup?
stuff in the can was called Eythel Chloride
..watching this Ump. getting hit so much... why don't they use the old couch cushion protector anymore?
he's been good. But he & should save something to talk about rest of season.
. Who is commentating with you tonight?
Mario Impemba corrected Kirk Gibson on his "mute point"
So cool to hear Gibby broadcasting during tonight's game...love him!
I respect for saying he's not good at math on air. Humble man.
Tonight's guests for the MVP program courtesy of
Mariners SS and C have different socks on. Uni violation - free out is what I'm thinking 😉
I haven't watched many tigers games this year but this announcer is terrible (not Mario impemba ) this guy's a snoozer
I sure do wish was in the booth with They have much better chemistry than the duo tonight.
that looked like that hurt! Does he choose to throw a ball or does it just happen?
Love the former Tigers in the booth (Gibson, Morris). Keep 'em coming.
Watched Morris w/my dad, as a child. He recently passed:(. I'm coming to game Wed, can u help me get my Morris jersey signed
They should vote in announcers for the too. .
explain why Krauss plays before Marte if it's D BS
In junior high school he had a phase where he insisted we call him Chaz Fair. Fort Gratiot intermediate school.
how can u defend having Krauss w 138 BA be better than one of our minor prospects sad
for good of team put ego aside Verlander to bullpen
So sick & tired of making excuses & defending this team! They don't even look upset playing this bad!
come on man. Toughen up on verlander a little. He never looked like verlander of old during his last start. Almost hit mute
You're good broadcasters and I hope u guys don't leave but when were losing and we hear the it, its tough lol 😁 good job tho!
example by Cespedes to end game - 3 runs down, baserunners needed - swings all his might at bad pitches
It's not like Avila would be sacrificing a lot of HRs by bunting. He rarely hits HRs.
The have too many selfish players who won't take a bunt single against a shift. Make Avila always do it!
This is why I can't stand Mario Impemba. He shows zero emotion in the game. David has 10 Ks. Show a little emotion. I know Hawk would.
Jack Morris was so good in his prime he could strike out the side on 2 pitches. Stay thirsty my friend.
a question for you. Is the base running sand, gravel?
Frankenmuth tournament not so bad here
I wanna go to the game tonight but I don't know about that heat...any extra space in the booth? 😁
Coming to the game tonight? Start drinking water & hydrating now! Remember you can bring in sealed bottles of unflavor…
great view. You guys should auction off a night with you guys in the booth for charity. If I lived in the area I would bid
Beautiful crowd, beautiful field. Good finish - on our way to successful 2nd half!
best broadcasters there are you and watch your broadcast every Tigers game and i love it.
Also wish I could reach the remote so I don't have to listen to Mario Impemba and Rod Allen's annoying commentary
. What the heck is that annoying music at Comerica DURING the game?
Hey and I'm at beeks bar in monroe mi at the give me a shout !!!
I highly doubt that & actually believe this team can even win a wild card! r garbage!
All good things come to an end. Last Miller Light All-Star Show on the . Guests today: 1-866-838-HUGE
Thanks to Detroit Tigers play by play man for coming on The Sports Pen. Catch the interview at 4:15pm ET
One thing Detroit does well is announcers. Ernie, George Kell, Paul Carey, Dan Dickerson, Mario Impemba on tv is pretty good.
great! Add battered women to dead kids and lost puppies. Awesome commercials so far!
Hey check out Some had me laffing pretty *** hard!
Every commercial this year is about some sort of life lesson. What a joke! Sell ur product and STFU
none of that during baseball season, right? Please??
I received "If These Walls Could Talk" for my bday yesterday. I travelled from Ottawa, Canada to witness Alverez's no-no.
MLIVE:5 things to do around Ann Arbor this week: see Kathy Mattea, Mario Impemba and more
about to start this book. Pretty excited.
Keep in mind I was a 3 time All-Star in the Farmington Little League, Mario
lots of familiar names to me. I'm originally from Jackson.
Honored to be asked to be part of the Michigan Baseball Hall of Fame selection committee.
And that's why you don't give Max that money. You give it to DP!
Half of David Price's starts in 2014 were eight innings or more.
Can't wait to be listening to you and again!!
Just me or does is he hugging a guy who looks like the main character from Prison Break lol?
can't wait for March 6 arrival date
it's 64 in Panama City. Going to First Pitch Classic tomorrow to watch Gulf Coast College. Ain't but it is
Wonder what the temperature is in Lakeland?

Does this get you pumped for the season? You seem to love calling Miggy bombs!
Keep doing what you do, Rod. You and are the best in the biz. Wouldn't trade you guys for anyone.
Hey Mario mi amigo, thanks a million, means a lot. Best to you and the - take good care of Yoenis
They'll win the Central again. “Give me some good Tigers news, buddy. My heart needs it.”
Congratulations to friend on his award from the Southern California Broadcasters.
"Can't wait for baseball to start and 2 hear "It took just 7 pitches for Zeid to retire the side"
NEW DSR ARTICLE: Rod Allen and Mario Impemba still hate each other. And Fox Sports Detroit Execs ponder what to do.
At the start of the 5th, Mario Impemba was talking about the fact that with a Tigers win and Royals loss Detroit would wrap up the division title. He could have, and in my opinion should have, stopped right there, but no! He had to break the cardinal rule and say "and it looks like things are headed that way, with the Tigers leading 1-0 and the Royals trailing the White Sox 3-0." I screamed at my TV, "Mario! This one's on you now!" By the end of the 5th, the score was Twins 6, Tigers 1 and now the Royals are on the scoreboard in the windy city! I know Mike Vitale won't agree with me, and with an offense like the Tigers they can certainly come back, but c'mon Mario... yer killin me!
He might. You've had Mario Impemba himself and also Dan Dickerson. Illustrious guests, there.
What You Don't Know About Obama and Jobs Before I get into all that, I want to review some numbers with you, because unless you're a hyper-informed political junkie, I doubt you know them. How many net jobs has the economy created during Barack Obama's presidency, and how many did it create... Read more on Daily Beast Book review: 'If These Walls Could Talk' If you are a fan of the Detroit Tigers and a visitor to this website, you are more than likely familiar with Mario Impemba and his "don't rock the boat" approach to calling Tigers games. Very rarely will he voice displeasure. Very rarely does he show ... Read more on Bless You Boys (blog)
I wonder what the record is in games you've called.
.. Think we could get a look at the folks in the "New York command center" that make these decisions
love hearing the kids in the background chanting "lets go tigers" on every home telecast. Should give them some tv time.
"foul tip", OBR 2.00. A ball that goes directly from the bat into the catcher's mitt and caught. All else is a foul ball.
Suarez's nickname should be "Bambino." My husband has been calling him that since his 2nd game
Why I dislike Mario Impemba: in an empty, matter-of-fact tone, "The Tigers bullpen ERA is starting to creep up a...
After yesterday's telecast happy to be listening to and
If Suarez keeps this up, what happens next year when Iglesias is back? Castellanos LF/RF Suarez 3B Iglesias SS?
. Could you guys give a shout out to my father today? Dennis Wansiter. I can't be home with him today.
Happy Father's Day Mario...No better place to spend this day than at a ballpark. All the best to you and your family.
Can't wait to see things back to normal with and back in the booth today. ⚾️👌
I'll be there today with my dad. Go Tigers!
Best view in all of baseball. Have a good call today. Green Tigers
Don't know who those guys were that called the game today but they have a ways to go to catch up to and
If Suarez keeps this up what happens to Iglesias?
Mario and are slowly becoming a single announcer. “Suarez. E-Money”
Our guys are so much better announcing the games. Not the same!
we all got together already and decided we're going with Geno
Rod said he had to hit a few more home runs until you were allowed to call him that. So for now it's. E-Money?
If he keeps this up he won't be in the 9 slot for long...
ironically, the more popular get, the fewer broadcasts you and Rod do! FS-1 & ESPN picking up slack
Wether the win or lose watching them on t.v. without and just isn't the same!
just yanking your chain. Got a big schnozzola myself.
hey Mario, is that a nose on your face or are you just happy to see ???
you guys are the best in the business give me something to stride for! Thanks for that!
Hurry back big fellas, this game is not the same without you.
hello to my two favorite announcers from the SRO !
I'll be going to school at UCF for sports business management and communications! Only hope to be as good as you and Rod!:)
Next step a Zubaz selfie with or do you both believe in The Curse of the Zubaz?
And yet you follow me. Makes sense.
The best. "The NHL sure has some great traditions.
I can't believe how much heart those players have.
The NHL sure has some great traditions.
I don't understand why Nathan keeps pitching. DET fans pretty smart did u hear bos?
why does the front corner of Nathan's hat look like dark/shaded...like pine-tar like? Sure it's not...but similar?
Mario Impemba just suggested calling Suarez "E-Money". look into new broadcasters for baseball
"Tigers again threaten, but failed to score! " Mario Impemba
Catching a glimpse of and from the StubHub Ultimate Seats
just watched the Leyland robot ejection on you tube. Classic!
Friday the 13th and a full moon? That's almost as scary as pitching to and Victor Martinez
Honored to play understudy for the on the mic the next 2 nights. Hey another Spartan in the press box!
I'm a VN Vet. How do I become a Monday Nite Veteran for the Tiger games that U sponsor?
There's no such thing as luck. You guys are fine.
Stop blaming** Mario for jinxing pitchers. That's totally moronic. Especially when the Tiger offense goes that quiet.
Mario is like Linda wearing Robbie's Van Halen shirt in Wedding Singer
Thank you for picking Tyson's picture as your pic!! So cool!!!
I took your advice and I "stayed tuned" Tigers didnt win but it was for sure interesting like you said lol
it's raining in East Lansing right now
Why was Ian Krol called for a balk there? I didn't see him move at all!
Mario I agree, a mgr loses his challenge and gets a free pass after the 7th inning! Makes no sense!
Your spot on with that assessment. You blow your challenge call early that is managers fault! No extra replays!!
I LOVE being able to watch the on TV but I HATE having to listen to the other teams announcers.I need &
that is not chalk out there... Painted lines, have you watched them sweep the line ?
Mario impemba might be worse than pierre.
you just future jinxed. Gonna take a Delorean or a Terminator to fix it now!
Kudos to for a great job helping the veterans with his MVP program
how does a vet sign up for the MVP program?
I'm not a fan of the Replay Challenge. Especially when it causes a 3 minute delay in the game.
The system is like ALL Govt intervention - unintended consequences far outweigh any pluses.
Lorna Collard gets a hug from Torii Hunter.
Mario..how many challenges do each team get?
Geesh Ausmus went to an Ivy League school & HE thinks you are powerful enough to jinx
Its amazing how much better and are compared to the chicago announcers
and watching the tigers on the iPad in Florida on vacation can't miss a game
Love watching the on with and in Lakeland, Florida!
Mario Impemba talking about Alex Avila "There's one bat that the Tigers need to get going". Seems like we have been hearing that same saying for the past 3 years. DADY
Thanks for your support for veterans It's nice to see that token of thanks to those who served.
Respect for and his work with Operation Opening Day and MVP We got our opening day DVD all 3 yrs while stationed overseas!
Can I feature you on a sports podcast in the near future?
.meets with his Military Veterans Program at the set!
The game is on tonight in Calgary... Really hope its the FSD coverage and not Hawk and WGN!
May 24th at Barnes and Noble in Grosse Pointe at 11 AM, May 7th in Shelby Twp. at 11AM and Brighton the same day at 3:30PM.
10 minor leaguers currently on the team - Romine, Worth, Avila, Holaday, Castellanos, Kelly, Miller, Coke, Krol, Putkonen
About to get my Monday afternoon on 🐯🐯
Interested in finding out other dates/locations for your book signings. Thanks! :)
3 of the best hitters in baseball in the same park for 3 days and all three in MAJOR slumps... what a weekend...
went to game today and had a huge sign saying you and are my Tigers! Ya see me?!
Or is it Grade 12 Calc??? loool. Awesome way to start off the school day
Estoy de acuerdo. I've never pronounced it any other way.
Just ordered a copy of 's new book. Can't wait to read it!!
During the Angel's challenge of Torii Hunter's non pickoff, Mario Impemba gets on his soapbox about the flow of the game being disrupted with the 3.5 minute delay. What flow of the game? That's one pitching change, one commercial break, one Sean Casey at-bat taking on and off his batting glove twelve times or one Sweet Caroline at Fenway.
I understand the replay thing & think it can be good, but they seem to be reviewing every little call.
Rod Allen and Mario Impemba may be the worst TV broadcasting duo in baseball, maybe all of sports.
Today you said they were doing the first wave of the year at the CoPa. We were doing it there Friday night. And well.
Hey Mario and Rod what is JV supposed to do, drive Kate around in a Buick?
Angels were waiting to see if they should review Romine steal.
I thought the same thing when you guys said it. Changing the timing to hold the runner.
and are always fun to listen to, exceptional descriptions and interesting stories, two of the best MLB announcers
. sitting out in left field and Rajai Davis looks like he's wearing a massive glove. Any reason for that?
I love when and have personal conversations on air.
Hey you can always become a Custodian at FSD. (Ask or Enberg)
love Mario, .but *** Enberg can fill in anytime. Just call in sick once in.a while &write nother gr8 book
Likewise buddy. Have a great season.
It was great hangin' with ya this weekend Mario!
bummed that the lost but loved the Ron Burgundy send off by !
thanks for not reading directly off the prompter. Great closing line. You are always classy. Now go play some yazz flute
So glad I experienced the 1st slice of cheddar just now with and Go Tigers!
When will Operation Opening Day DVDs be ready? I know a Michigan Marine on deployment who would dig it!
Thanks for letting *** Enberg call an inning. Met him as a CMU undergrad. What an absolute gem!
Can we trade chase headley and *** enburg for Mario impemba? He has the kind of voice that will make a wolverine purr
: The Padres coaches look like UPS drivers.
Class move on & part to have *** Enberg broadcast a inning for Detroit TV broadcast.
I love *** Enberg but and make a pretty good broadcasting team
Great job in the booth with that yahoo
...SD can appreciate a great voice calling baseball on a Sunday...thanks for letting us listen in..new fan right here
Mario Impemba is lightyears ahead of ***
The “don’t jinx the no-hitter crowd” is already plotting ways to keep Mario Impemba from leaving the booth.
just got my MLB extra innings now I can watch every game
I love Mario Impemba but *** Enberg is WAY better. Awesome voice
tie it up at 1 with some clutch hitting from V-Mart. Special thanks to Mario Impemba for the kind words regarding the Padres
Listening to *** Enberg after Mario Impemba is like hearing Mozart directly after Rebecca Black.
*** Enberg makes me realize how bad of an announcer Mario Impemba really is
Announcer swap! *** Enberg working on and Mario Impemba on
*** Enberg hitting the booth with while joins the Great voice. graduate, as well.
Holy Cats what a play in left - Mario Impemba. Don't know why, but it makes me laugh.
