John Sterling will introduce new Giancarlo Stanton home run call
New York Yankees broadcaster John Sterling will be introducing a new home run call for Giancarlo Stanton.
After Sterling’s first call did not go over well with fans, the longtime Yankee radio announcer decided to mix in a new call for Stanton — but it isn’t any less obscure than his other one.
Sterling told Andrew Marchand of the New York Post that he would sing “Non dimenticar … that ball sure traveled far” for Stanton home runs. It’s based on a song recorded by both Nat King Cole and Dean Martin. “Non dimenticar” is Italian for “do not forget.”
Sterling clarified that he’s not dropping his old call and plans to mix both in. The way the Yankee slugger is going right now, though, it may be a little bit of time before we get to hear either of them.
