I'm sure Mr. McCarver is a nice fellow, and lots of kids consider him a wonderful grandfather. But his baseball announcing is painfully stupid. Here's a trick: If you have Surround Sound, or something similar, turn down your center speaker. That's where most of the commetary comes through.

Another bonus is you'll hear the roll call from Section 203 in Yankee Stadium much clearer. Listen carefully just after the first pitch, as Bald Vinny yells "YO! Johnny!", and they go around the diamond. If you haven't been to either Yankee Stadiums, and experienced that section, you're missing a baseball treat.
