John Sterling call of Chris Dickerson home run, his first major league hit in 2012

Update, Sept. 26, 2012, Dickerson 2 run home run in the 6th v Twins, Sterling:
  •  Chris Dickerson "Christens that high wall in right!"
Chris Dickerson's first 2012 Yankee at bat was a 2 run home run in the 2nd observed by John Sterling:
  • "Chris Dickerson Christens the right field seats!"
Sept. 2, 2012 v Orioles at the Stadium, final 8-3 Orioles. Per B-R, Chris had one home run as a Yankee in 2011. I didn't make a note of Sterling's call on that one, it's possible he said the same thing. He definitely said something because Sterling has never missed a game since he started on Yankee radio in 1989. The only note I have for Chris Dickerson in 2011 is as a pinch runner, 5/24/11 v Blue Jays, final 5-4 Yankees:
electrified the crowd with a double to right-center off Frank Francisco. He was given a standing ovation as he was removed for pinch-runner Chris Dickerson, who moved to third on a groundout by Derek Jeter.
Curtis Granderson singled home Dickerson to tie the score, then stole second base before Teixeira singled through the infield, scoring him to make a winner out of Sabathia (5-3).
Teixeira may have been the hero, but he credited Posada’s double with getting things started, saying: “That’s huge. If that doesn’t happen, it may not have ended up the way it did.”"...
