Update: Oct. 19, ALCS game 4, bottom of the second vs Texas Bombers,
- Berkman hit what an umpire first ruled a home run, but on review it was called foul. When it was first ruled fair, John Sterling on radio did give exactly the same call as he did for Berkman's first Yankee home run, described below.
In the bottom of the 5th, Tampa Bay v Yankees, Lance Berkman gets his first home run as a Yankee (and the Yankees' first run of the game). John Sterling makes the call on radio:
- "Sir Lancelot rides to the rescue!"
UPDATE, 9/26, Researched by JohnSterling.blogspot.com,
the reference is from Broadway show, "Camelot," in which Sir Lancelot
sings a song called, "C'est Moi,
" meaning "it's me." Sterling's "C'est lui," in French means, "It's him," referring to Berkman.
