Start Your Day By Listening To Tom Hamilton Call The Final Out Of The ALCS

When I die, instead of sad music at my funeral, I want this 30 second clip of Hammy calling the final out of the ALCS on repeat as they lay my casket into the ground. Tom brings it strong here as always. (As he did throughout the year)

Thankfully the Indians got this series done in 5 games so we won’t have to listen to the TBS broadcast anymore. If I had to be subjected to Ron Darling’s blabbering for 1 or 2 more games I think I would have just ended it.

On to Chicago/Los Angeles


Listen to Tom Hamilton call all 11 walk-off Indians wins in 2016

No team has done it more times than the Cleveland Indians in 2016.

Eleven walk-off wins.

One Tom Hamilton.


  1. 6/1/16 5-4 vs Texas, 11 innings, Yan Gomes single

2. 6/2/16 5-4 vs Kansas City, 9 innings, Francisco Lindor triple/Napoli sac fly

3. 6/17/16 3-2 vs Chicago White Sox, 9 innings, Carlos Santana solo homer

4. 6/19/16 3-2 vs Chicago White Sox, 10 innings, Jose Ramirez single (hours before the Golden State Warriors officially blew a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals)

5. 7/26/16 7-6 vs Washington, 9 innings, Lindor single

6. 8/18/16 5-4 vs Chicago White Sox, 9 innings, Tyler Naquin sac fly

7. 8/19/16 3-2 vs Toronto, 9 innings, Tyler Naquin inside-the-park homer

Bonus Matt Underwood call:

And dugout reaction:

8. 8/29/16 1-0 vs Minnesota, 10 innings, Jason Kipnis single

9. 9/4/16 6-5 vs Miami, 9 innings, Lonnie Chisenhall single

10. 9/17/16 1-0 vs Detroit, 10 innings, Ramirez single

11. 9/20/16 2-1 vs Kansas City, 9 innings, Brandon Guyer single

So, October’s gonna be pretty cool.



Tom Hamilton delivered on his first home run call of 2016

Sweet onion chicken teryaki did I miss that.

Other thoughts from yesterday…

  • I picture Mike Napoli at bats in my head when I try to fall asleep at night now. Slow, calculated, patient. Like watching a bearded ballerina.
  • Carlos Santana carried his bangin’ spring right into the regular season. Gotta seriously consider trying him in the 2 hole again when Brantley comes back. Gets on base more than anybody, you’d think you want to maximize his plate appearances. For everyone that wanted him traded over the winter/wants him traded by the deadline, I have a Joni Mitchell song I’d like you to listen to.
  • I loved the red socks/undershirts underneath the navy jerseys last year, love them underneath the whites this year even more. Maybe the whole “breaking news” that really broke two years ago about Wahoo being the secondary logo was a calculated move,  and the callback to the 90s with the red undershirts was meant to mitigate the damage with Wahoo apologists. Or maybe they just realized it looks goddamn fabulous.
  • I honestly believe in my heart of hearts that David Ortiz is going to hit a home run every single time he steps up to the plate
  • Jose Ramirez helmet fly offs is going to be a fun game to play for about a month (cc: @DidJRAMLoseit)
  • Lot of hard hit balls last night. Jackie Bradley is incredible in center. We weren’t barreling balls up like this last April.
  • Tyler Naquin struck out in his only at bat on “Opening Day.” Came back last night 1-2 and scored a run. This misplay in center was a part of the disastrous 6th.

He’ll be fine. It might take a few more games, but he’ll be fine.

  • Cool story from Clevescene about the notorious red-faced Wahoo supporter who got in the face of Native American protesters on Opening Day two years ago
  • Lord help me if they wait to call tonight’s game until after I get downtown
