TV, radio calls of Garrett Stubbs’ walk-off homer vs. the Marlins

I’ve been doing these radio calls synced to video for a few years now. It honestly started with Merrill Reese and the Eagles, and Franzke quickly followed. Now I try to do the best calls synced to video when it comes to not only the Eagles and Phillies, but the Sixers, Flyers, and Union. There’s just something about seeing the video with the radio call that gets the adrenaline going.

And that’s exactly what happened yesterday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, when Garrett Stubbs graced us with more exciting walk-off magic a week and a half after Bryce Harper and Bryson Stott punctuated the Angels series. Sure, Monday night’s walk-off was fun, but this was … magic. Down to his final strike with two outs, Stubbs took a close pitch – definitely a ball – just outside before depositing a baseball into the right field stands to win the game.

And now, here is every call and angle you could possibly want to see, as always brought to you by (@_piccone) on Twitter.

“Swung on and crushed! Deep right field! And that one is goooone!”

And in something I probably won’t do much of moving forward because it’s depressing, the Marlins’ Spanish call (Radio Mambi 710 WAQI)

Note: You may have already seen Scott Franzke’s call on 94WIP’s Twitter feed, and if you look close enough, you can just make out my name at the bottom of the video. It’s the very minimal amount of credit given when someone just tweets a video you uploaded to the platform without tagging you. Though not a WIP employee, usually you’d think a H/T or tag would be the best way to at least show the minimal amount of respect. After all, some of those that shared it decry the way sports journalism exists today in a more digital world and talk about giving proper credit a lot. Just interesting to see them… not do it when it’s not “one of theirs.”
