David Cone had some fun at the expense of Yankees radio announcer John Sterling during the fourth inning of Tuesday’s Yankees-Red Sox game. Cody Ross was batting and fouled an 0-1 pitch back towards the announcing booths. The ball went between the Yankees’ radio and TV booths, and TV commentator David Cone immediately began making fun of play-by-play voices Sterling and Michael Kay for avoiding the ball.
Coney gave it particularly hard to Sterling, getting off this instant classic line:
“It is high, it is far, it is on my forehead.”
That of course was Cone’s way of mocking Sterling, who bellows “it is high, it is far, it is gone,” when the Yankees hit home runs. Well done Coney, well done.
What’s strange is that this is the second time in about a week that Sterling has been at the center of foul balls. Last week, his microphone was hit by a foul ball in a Yankees-Rays game:
I guess Sterling is too busy focusing on his scripted home run calls to worry about a little nuisance like foul balls.Google+
