Longtime play-by-play man Jim Paschke, right, has teamed with former Bucks player Marques Johnson to call games on what is now Bally Sports Wisconsin.

Into the air … Yount, makes a great catch and Juan Nieves has thrown the first no-hitter in Milwaukee Brewer history!”

They are the words of Jim Paschke, who’s been part of the Milwaukee sports fabric for more close to four decades. On April 15, 1987, he was in his second week as play-by-play man for the Brewers and Milwaukee Bucks when he called the only no-hitter in Brewers history

On Tuesday, Paschke announced that the 2020-21 season with the Bucks would be his last, concluding with the first round of the playoffs before all television broadcasts shifted to national platforms. After 35 years with play-by-play duties, he’s retiring from his gig as play-by-play announcer on Bally Sports Wisconsin.
