Zoilo Almonte gets first John Sterling home run call of 2014, "It's the mark of Zoilo!"
"Here is Zoilo Almonte, he's O for one on the year, a switch hitter hitting left, and Volquez' pitch is swung on and hit in the air to deep right, it is high, it is far, it is gone! How da ya like that! Zoilo Almonte homers deep in the right field seats! It's the mark of Zoilo! He homers to deep right, and the Yankees take a three nothing lead."
"The Mark of Zorro" is of course the story of the masked avenger who has saved the day for generations.
John Sterling's 2013 call for Zoilo Almonte was different:
6/21/13, Zoilo Almonte hits his first Yankee and ML home run in bottom of 6th, Yankees v Tampa Bay Rays. This is John Sterling's tag:
"You know what Tampa is saying...curses, "Zoiled" again....Zoilo Almonte hits his first major league home run..."
