Tanner is no stranger to baseball announcing. He called the Richmond Braves Triple A games for 12 years with broadcast partner Dave Van Horne, who is now announcing for the Montreal Expos. He has also worked with Virginia Sports Hall of Fame member Frank Soden and has called the Durham Bulls television broadcasts on WRAL-TV with Tom Suiter and Francis Coombs in 1983 and 1984.
