Brewers announcer misjudges flyball, winds up getting excited over long flyout
Brewers announcer Brian Anderson is really good at his job; he’s been calling games in front of a national audience on TBS for eight years, and has worked countless big playoff games. But every baseball announcer misjudges flyballs from time to time.
It just so happened that Anderson’s eyes deceived him at a crucial point in Monday night’s game, when Chris Carter tried to end the game in the bottom of the ninth with a homer. Carter smacked a pitch out to deep center, and Anderson began to get excited.
“HOW FAR WILL IT FLYY???”
Not far enough.
To be fair, a ton of people thought that ball was out.
Milwaukee fell to the Braves, 4–3, in 12 innings. It ended in the lamest way possible, too, on a dropped flyball.
