Steve LyonsSteve Lyons, who was fired from Fox for what the broadcast network called a racially insensitive comment during Game 4 of the ALCS will be retained as as a part-time television commentator for the Dodgers.

Lyons would undergo diversity training and has been given probationary guidelines as part of the agreement. Of the training, Lyons said, "I'm happy to do it."

As reported:

Of the probationary guidelines, he said, "They give the Dodgers the right to fire me if there are any other transgressions, but I think they'd have that right anyway."

It's believed Lyons was making about $500,000 a year from Fox and the Dodgers, with about three-fourths of that from Fox.

"I'm taking a big financial hit," Lyons said, "but I'm thrilled and proud to continue as a voice of the Dodgers."
