MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have reached across the border to replace longtime radio play-by-play man John Gordon.

The team announced on Thursday that former Brewers backup Cory Provus will take over the primary duties in the Twins’ booth. The 33-year-old Provus worked with Hall of Famer Bob Uecker in Milwaukee for the past three years.

In Minnesota, Provus will team with Dan Gladden on Twins broadcasts. Gordon retired this season after 25 years with the Twins.

Twins president Dave St. Peter says Provus’ style, baseball acumen and sense of humor will be a strong compliment to Gladden.

Provus has also worked for the Chicago Cubs and the University of Alabama-Birmingham. He is a native of Highland Park, Ill., and graduated from Syracuse University.
