ESPN has parted ways with long-time baseball commentator John Kruk. He was with the company for 12-years before leaving.

The decision was reportedly mutual.

“ESPN and I have mutually agreed to part ways,” Kruk announced via Twitter. “I can’t thank them enough for all they have done for me and my family. I will continue to pursue TV opportunities so I can continue covering the game I love.”

Kruk has been working in TV since 2001. He was with Fox Sports Net’s “The Best Damn Sports Show Period” and Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia from 2001 to 2003. He joined ESPN in 2004.

He retired from baseball in 1995 after a ten-year career. During his career, he played with the Philadelphia Phillies, San Diego Padres and the Chicago White Sox.

He had a .300 batting average with a 100 home runs and 592 RBI’s.

“ESPN and John Kruk have mutually agreed to end our relationship at this time,” the company’s statement said. “We’re thankful to John for his memorable contributions to our baseball coverage over the years — a run which included roles on our signature MLB franchises ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ and ‘Baseball Tonight.’ We wish John all the best.”
