Ok so I was just reading a post about Phys and our current announcers. As I was reading I realized something and it got me to thinking. If I was an announcer what would my calls sound like? I know I would never say “jimmy-jack” for a homerun, but there are a few things I would be sure to say… for instance.
After a line drive HR: “He hit a frozen rope over the fence in left”
After a line drive in the gaps or down the line: “He just pissed on one right there.”
After a hard hit ball up the middle that the pitcher can’t field: “Oh, Lift up your skirt Salas.”
After a high and tight fastball: “Whoa, watch your lips!”
I know they may sound crazy to you but these are the clean things we used to say when I played on the Marines Baseball team.
What would your calls be?
