Yeah, no. The World Series was broadcast on Fox and Fox alone in America. The only way you got Vasgersian was in Canada or an MLB International feed.

Fox televised the series in the United States, under contract with Major League Baseball giving it exclusive rights to the World Series through 2021. Joe Buck was the network's play-by-play announcer, with John Smoltz as color commentator and Ken Rosenthal and Tom Verducci as field reporters.[80] Fox Deportes also aired the Series and provided a Spanish-language simulcast over-the-air via Fox's SAP audio, with Carlos Álvarez and Duaner Sánchez announcing.[81]

Sportsnet in English and RDS in French televised the series in Canada. Sportsnet used the MLB International feed produced by the MLB Network; Matt Vasgersian was MLB International's play-by-play announcer with the Toronto Blue Jays' play-by-play announcer Buck Martinez as their color analyst and MLB Network correspondent Lauren Shehadi and analyst Mark DeRosa as field reporters.

He probably saw clips of the HR using the MLB international feed. I cant remember specifically seeing the Davis HR but I know I saw clips of other WS moments with him calling it.

Ahh yes now I remember hearing this call. He screams out SANTA MARIA for some reason. There's probably a good reason right?

Eh, I never saw it, and MLB.com's highlights were all from Fox. And most of the season recap videos I watched skipped all the bad parts of the World Series, and even if they didn't, it was the Buck call. I had to find a YouTube rip to hear Vasgersians call.

Besides, I don't actively go seeking out one of the worst baseball moments of my life after I experienced it live just to hear what it sounded like out of someone else's mouth. That was enough for me, thank you very much.

A lot of the less scrupulous live streams end up pulling from international broadcasts, so that's a decent guess. His call may have been included in some of the replay packages too, I don't recall off hand.

remove your love for the cubs during this moment for one second: that rajai davis home run was horsefeathering awesome to watch. it tied up a game 7 of the world series two outs in the 8th inning. outside of a series-winning home run in the bottom of the 9th or extra innings, as a baseball fan, what more could you ask for?

i watch the replay of that home run on youtube as much as the positive cubs playoff highlights. it's a HOLY horsefeathers moment.

To me, this sounds like a guy shredding his vocal chords. It's possible capture the moment and be excited, but still sound smooth and professional. Vin Scully anyone? I know he's not too popular around here.

And not sure what your crusade about Matty V not calling the game is about, Logan. I watch a lot of MLB Network, where he appears frequently, so that call gets played often.

Oh it was intentional? Yeah I did not get that. So you intended for people to have to copy and paste and then remove the space? That seems...inefficient.

That's something he does once in a blue moon for a particularly huge home run, IIRC. Why is unknown, but it's a thing of his.

I suppose that those dudes should be allowed to do whatever they want, but that stuff is just so childish. I'm not surprised at the names of players who stuck up for the practices. And while dressing up the newcomers as cheerleaders might be fine in a vacuum, it is going to get emulated by kids (which Arrieta hints at), and I think most of us here have seen how swiftly out of hand things like this can get. Simply no need for it.

They don't seem to understand that the issue is not with hazing, or being mean to the players, but rather that hazing, or being mean to the young players was being defined by them as making men dress like women because women be weak and therefore you are weak if you dress like them hahaha you are uncomfortable.
