Mark Grace calls Jason Kubel home run seconds before it happens (Video)
Kubel bashed a two-run blast in the top of the second of Arizona’s game against Texas on Thursday to make it 2-1 and open the door for an 11-3 win.
As Rangers starter Scott Feldman was about to deliver a pitch, Grace said “Jason Kubel’s about to homer.” Sure enough, Kubel deposited a ball into the Rangers’ bullpen in right center for his 7th home run of the season.
A reader told Deadspin that Grace tries to do this sort of thing all the time, but that still doesn’t take away from my enjoyment of the video.
Grace’s call was easily the best broadcaster prediction since this one.
