ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Former Cardinals centerfielder Jim Edmonds is working his first Opening Day behind a mic.

Edmonds is a Fox Sports Midwest analyst.

He said it is a little scary to be a part of and he had to learn how to speak baseball again. He hopes as a former position player he can bring a unique perspective to games.

Edmonds said he was broken in last week covering the late west coast games - including the game that went 16 innings.
