If you don’t know the name John Sterling, you definitely know the voice.
The radio play-by-play man for the Yankees is famous for his personalized home run calls for each member of the team. But during the Wild Card Game on Tuesday, it went terribly wrong.
Giancarlo Stanton got a hold of a fastball from Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi for what appeared to be a sure home run in the first inning.
Sterling went right into his home run call for Stanton where he declares it a “Stantonian home run”. But the ball banged off the Green Monster and Stanton settled with a long single.
Check out the unfortunate series of events for John Sterling, Giancarlo Stanton, and the Yankees:
“What did I do wrong?” 😂 😂

Giancarlo Stanton is one of the most prolific power hitters of this generation, yet from now on, balls that look like home runs off the bat that don’t actually make it over the fence will forever be known as Stantonian home runs. Unfortunate. pic.twitter.com/rim7bIfWRq

Red Sox fans have every right to troll their bitter rival, and John Sterling gave them some added fuel on Tuesday.
For Boston, they’ll go on to face the Rays in the ALDS. And the Yankees will spend another offseason in disappointment about not reaching their goal of winning the World Series.
The Bronx will look for some redemption once next season rolls around. And John Sterling will hope his gaffe doesn’t live in infamy for too long.
