John Sterling’s call of the Yankees’ walkoff win on Opening Day will get Yankees fans even more excited. Josh Donaldson delivered in a big moment.
Sterling has been the voice of the Yankees for as long as we can remember. Despite all the turmoil in the Bronx, Sterling is a constant for fans in the New York metro area who just want to listen to the ball game.
On Opening Day, New York fans who tuned into 880 AM were treated to a memorable call. Josh Donaldson drove in Isiah Kiner-Falefa in the bottom of the 11th inning on Opening Day. This after New York faced an early 3-0 deficit at the hands of the Red Sox. Gerrit Cole had a rough go of it, but it didn’t matter in the end.
Damn right. What a comeback for the boys in pinstripes.
How old is Josh Donaldson?
Donaldson is 36 years old, which made the New York’s trade with the Twins all the more risky. His injury history of late is not positive either, but the Yankees like his upside, along with shortstop Kiner-Falefa.
On the day the Yankees failed to reach an extension with Aaron Judge, they needed a distraction. This one will be welcomed throughout the clubhouse. A win is a win.
