The JetHawks’ 4-3 win in the bottom of the ninth this afternoon, securing two of the three games in the series against the talent-filled San Jose Giants (story linked here), sent the kids home much happier than they had been hours earlier when some, in line to use the restroom, had to listen to my play-by-play call in the third inning.
You get what you pay for in Single-A baseball. Sometimes, it’s Rookie League talent.
A quick review: The inning went somewhat quickly, but both teams scored in their half of the frame — the Giants, on a home run, so when the audio comes through (for those who missed it) they’ll get to hear what I believe is the most unique home run call ever made in the history of baseball broadcasting.
Not to brag or anything….
Unique. Not best. And not to give it all away, but it’s punctuated by the most trite phrase in all of sportscasting: “HOW DOOO YOU DO!”
Stay tuned. The experience will be documented — with audio clips and photos — in Friday’s editions.
