New York Mets fans were treated to a smooth, professional call of Jose Reyes' third-inning home run against the Florida Marlins on SNY last night. Pretty impressive, really, considering that it was done by an 11-year-old.
Jacob Resnick was the Mets kidcaster this year, which means he got to call an inning of action. For the second straight year, the kidcaster had a home-team home run happen on his watch.
But Resnick certainly didn't panic. He lifted his pre-pubescent voice dramatically (back it gooooooooes) as the ball flew toward the wall and managed to work in a lot of specifics into his call before dropping an emphatic "it's gone."
The kid's future is bright. And I got to think he's going to be pretty popular when school resumes in the fall.
