John Sterling’s mic hit by a foul ball

During Monday's Yankees-Rays game, Robinson Cano fouled a ball straight for his own radio booth and Yankees play by play man John Sterling.  You can hear the amazing sound of the ball whacking Sterling's mic, as Suzyn Waldman steps in and Sterling comes back to life with a baseball in his hand.  The accompanying video from MLB.com has the moving pictures as evidence.  Then again, we don't actually see the ball hit the microphone, so maybe it did nail Sterling in the coconut instead.  Pa Pinstripe sounds way too clearheaded and coherent throughout the entire episode.
