Gary Matthews may also return in a different role.

According to NBC Philadelphia,

“I enjoy working for the Phillies and want to retire as a Phillie,” Matthews said in a phone conversation. “This is a great opportunity for me to remain in the area and also do my charity work.”

The decision came as a new television contract was signed between the Phillies and NBC Universal and Comcast SportsNet.
