New York Yankees play by play man John Sterling is known for his trademark home run calls that make some kind of ridiculous pun on the player’s name. Calls like “It’s an A-bomb from A-Rod” for Alex Rodriguez or “Bern baby Bern” for Bernie Williams or calling Jason Giambi the “Giambino.”
Rookie infielder Dean Anna hit his first home run for the Yankees yesterday against the Red Sox and this is how John Sterling called it…
“Anna is on the Dean’s list.”
It’s almost like John Sterling never considered the possibility of Dean Anna hitting a home run for the Yankees and that was the best he could come up with on the spot. It’s going to be an interesting year in the Bronx.
