MLB Network has announced Alexa Datt and Stephen Nelson will join their lineup of studio hosts.
Datt joins the network after working with MLB.com as host of The Dugout and their daily program 12:25 Live with Alexa. Datt’s prior credentials also include co-hosting The Morning Run on 120Sports.com, serving as in-stadium host at Citi-Field during Mets games and a reporter for SNY.
“Dream job! Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible and to MLB Network for bringing me on board. The 2018 season can’t start soon enough!!” said Datt via her Instagram page.
Nelson moves to MLB Network after contributing to Bleacher Report for three and a half years as a studio host covering multiple sports.
MLB Network also announced Matt Vasgersian will work as a studio host for MLB Tonight. Vasgersian spent the last three seasons as co-host of the network’s morning show, MLB Central, but his new role as play-by-play announcer for Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN made it difficult to retain that position.
