The Major League Baseball season (finally) begins today.
And I have figured out a fool proof way the Toronto Blue Jays can make the play-offs.
All the Jays need do is move from the American League East and into the National League Central.
Anyway, to help us get into the proper baseball spirit here are some of the top home run calls as determined by the Baseball Almanac:
"A high fly ball hit to deep ______. Took it to the track...wall...see. You. LATER!"
"Back, back, back, back... Gone!"
Chris Berman of ESPN
"Bonsoir, elle est partie!" French for "So long, she's gone!"
"Bye bye baby!"
"Get out the rye bread and mustard grandma, cause it's GRAND SALAMI TIME!"Dave Neihaus
"Get up, get outa here, gone for _____!"
"Going back (outfielder's name), at the track, at the wall... SSSEEYA!"
Michael Kay / YES Network
"Goodbye Dolly Grey!"
"It could be, it might be... It is, A home run!"
"It's going, going... gone!"
"Kiss it goodbye!"
"Long drive, way back, warning track wall, you cantouch em' all (player name)."
"Open the window Aunt Minnie, here it comes!"
"...swing and there it goes.... light tower power! Manny Ramirez."
Jerry Trupiano (Red Sox Radio Announcer)
"Swung on and there it goes! That ball is high! It is far! It is........GONE!"
John Sterling (formerly) of YESNetwork
"Tell it goodbye!"
Lon Simmons / Jon Miller
"That ball is going and it ain't coming back!"
"That ball is history!"
"They usually show movies on a flight like that."
"Watch that baby... Outta here!"
"Whattaya think about that?"
"Whoo, boy! Next time around, bring me back my stomach!"
"You can put it on the board.. Yessssssss!"
