Warren Sawkiw (born January 19, 1968) is a Canadian former professional baseball player and broadcaster. Born in Toronto, Ontario, Sawkiw played minor league baseball from 1990 to 1997. He started his career with class A Niagara Falls Rapids. He advanced as far as Triple A Syracuse Chiefs in 1995 before finishing his career in baseball with the Double A Birmingham Barons in 1997.
After his retirement from baseball as a player, Sawkiw joined TSN as a colour commentator on Montreal Expos games in 2001 and then Rogers Sportsnet as a studio analyst for the network's baseball coverage in 2003. After long-time Blue Jays radio broadcaster Tom Cheek was unable to serve as the team's lead radio play-by-play announcer in 2005 due to health issues, Sawkiw joined Jerry Howarth as an analyst on Blue Jays radio broadcasts. Sawkiw continued working in this capacity through the 2006 season, with former Blue Jays catcher and Houston Astros broadcaster Alan Ashby replacing Sawkiw in the broadcast booth in 2007. Sawkiw did Color Commentary for CBC Sports' coverage of Baseball at the 2008 Summer Olympics. Sawkiw also served as the announcer for CBC Sports' coverage of baseball at the 2015 Pan American Games.
