When you have one thing severe to say on a baseball broadcast, keep as far-off from a Nick Castellanos at-bat as doable.
On Sunday, throughout a spring coaching recreation between the Phillies and Blue Jays, the Toronto broadcast crew was discussing Blue Jays pitching coach (and former Mets pitcher) Pete Walker’s current DUI arrest – and Castellanos was on the plate for Philadelphia.
Lo and behold, Castellanos bought a base hit.
That is at the least the third time Castellanos has interrupted a severe broadcasting second.
Most famously, Castellanos homered to left as Reds play-by-play announcer Thom Brennaman was apologizing for utilizing an anti-gay slur that had simply been caught on a scorching mic. To at the present time, “there’s a drive into deep left area by Castellanos and that’ll be a house run” stays a joke that will get used throughout nearly each controversy.
For his half, Brennaman has mentioned that he has discovered to reside with it.
Final July, Castellanos hit one other dwelling run – to an identical spot in left area – because the Royals broadcast was eulogizing World Struggle II veteran George Gorman, father of longtime clubhouse worker Pat Gorman, who had died at 96 years outdated.
To repeat: Each baseball producer must know when Castellanos is coming to the plate, and keep far-off from something severe at these instances.
