ESPN analyst Orel Hershiser visited former teammates Tuesday at Bank One Ballpark.
Although Hershiser enjoys his new broadcasting career, he also misses his previous job.
"I don't miss throwing the ball, I miss the camaraderie and the team concept," the 204-game winner said. "Just hanging out in the locker room and traveling with the guys, having a relationship with a team, that's the part I miss.
"As far as throwing the ball, no, because I realize that part of my life is over. I'd be embarrassed, or even hurt, if I went out there and threw the ball. I don't miss things that would embarrass me."
Hershiser, scheduled to work 30 games this season, said TV work has enabled him to remain close to the game.
"That's what's great about doing the games," he said. "I get back to renew the old relationships and see the guys, see different people and stay current with the game."
