John Sterling Retires Immediately

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

There’s no other way to describe it, John Sterling was the G.O.A.T. in New York when it came to the Yankee broadcasts.  Don’t get me wrong, some people didn’t like him there. Some people thought he was a clown with his calls. I did not. There was something comforting to hearing John in the booth with Suzyn.  The home run calls were weird and sometimes didn’t make much sense, but that’s John and he did it for us.  Yesterday was the day that we found out that it was final… John retired, like immediately.  Sad, an end of an Era, but it was time.  

The New York Post writes:

“The Yankees announced Monday that Sterling is retiring, effective immediately, after 36 seasons of being synonymous with the franchise.

Known for his iconic voice, colorful personality, unique home run calls and announcing Yankees wins in a way only he could, the 85-year-old Sterling will be honored in a pregame ceremony Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.”

The Yankees honoring him is the right thing to do.  I love that they are doing a pregame ceremony.  He gave so much for so long. You gotta respect that.
The fact that health concerns is the issue makes sense.  If Sterling was in better health, I’m sure he’d keep going.
So, as BYB will do, we give our best to John. A tip of the cap as they say. Thank you. Thank you for giving us so much for so long.  You will be missed. 
Thank you.
