There is not much information about Tim McCarver’s daughters as they seem to be living a quiet and non-celebrity life.

McCarver was professionally involved in baseball for seven decades after making his Major League debut with the Cardinals in 1959. This includes a 21-year Major League playing career before becoming an accomplished broadcaster who was compared to John Madden of football in baseball by many.

Due to his flawless command of the English language and his genial Southern drawl, McCarver was able to make baseball easier for the average fan to understand. In addition, McCarver received the Ford C. Frick Award from the Hall of Fame in 2012 for his Emmy-winning performance in the booth.
