Yankees announcer John Sterling is colossally misleading – and his correction is priceless

Longtime New York Yankees broadcaster John Sterling calls them what he sees them – and that’s not always a good thing.

He went viral for his hilariously misguided portrayal of a Giancarlo Stanton fly ball on Wednesday against the Toronto Blue Jays. (Check it out below.)

As Stanton tuned in, the play-by-play radio veteran dropped his signature home run riff:

“This ball is high, it is far, it is gone!” he exclaimed. A few beats later, after realizing Blue Jays outfielder Raimel Tapia had recorded the takedown on the warning lane, Sterling added, “But taken.”

“Boy, I thought it was gone,” Sterling followed.

Fans and critics on Twitter took their beatings at Sterling.
