Home Run Calls ...

Baseball ... There is so much to this wonderful game. Every pitch setting up the next pitch. Ballplayers fielding their positions based on the hitter, on the score, the inning. Hitters working the pitcher. 1st to 3rd. Incredible catches & fielding plays. All of this & so much more. All of the intricacies of the game. The oft times hilarity in the dugout. The strikeout of the great hitter to win the game. And, the home run! With the home run comes the always thrilling Home Run Call! As follows is a sampling:
