John Sterling Home Run Calls

Sterling is heavily criticized in the media, with over 100 websites dedicated to denigrating his style and calls. Many baseball writers and websites have ranked him the worst or close to the worst of current baseball radio announcers. Much of the criticism stems from calling balls home runs that are not home runs, mixing up fair and foul balls, and his personalized home run calls, which some people view as “over-the-top” or “too much”.

Regularly criticized by Craig Carton and Phil Mushnick for his inaccurate calls, Mushnick has called him a “dishonest, self-promoting clown”. He has also been heavily criticized for making the call of the game more about himself than the play on the field with over the top excitement for routine plays or insignificant events.

Many of his critics further accuse him of blaming someone or something else for his confusion. He has also been consistently rated as one of the most biased sportscasters in the industry.
