      I gotta say,

      Timlin...Nixon bunts, Timlin on it, throws to first...for the first time in history, the World Championship banner will fly north of the border! The Toronto Blue Jays are baseball's best in 1992!
      But I might be a bit partial

      I originally was going to say:

      Touch 'em all, Joe, you'll never hit a bigger home run in your life!
      but changed my mind

        I do not know if Barber used that frequently or just for this call.

        Berman's rendition was a poor copy.
        According to Larry King in Bums, Barber said one 'back' for each step that Gionfriddo took when going after DiMaggio's flyball.

          Not heard since the 1970s, but still one of the best:

          You can... KISS IT GOODBYE!!

            Favorite: "You can put it on the board" - Ken Harrelson

            and

            "Its outta here" from Mets games on Sportsnet New York

              When Dick Enberg did Angels games, he would say, "Touch 'em all!" That was fine. No offense to White Sox fans and Hawk Harrelson, but I don't really enjoy homers, and as someone said above, carrying on as he does no matter the score just doesn't do it for me.

              I'm not that big a fan of stylized home run calls. Mel Allen would occasionally say, "Going, going ... caught," though far less often than John Sterling has to fix his own mess. But I think of the story Ken Levine told about the announcer who would say, "Touch 'em all, Manny Ramirez," or whoever had homered, and one day the announcer forgot the player's name, paused, and said, "Touch 'em all ... baseball man!"

                EVERY SINGLE TIME!

                As for Berman, he sounds like a chicken laying an egg every time he calls a home run. I hit the mute button when I'm watching the Derby.
                There are multiple cameras at those games. That's not the cameraman's call to do that, though. Any change in shots come for the director in the booth, who does it by pushing a button on the control panel.

                I'm not a fan of Berman's in-game calls, though.

                  "(and you can) tell it bye bye baby!" never gets old.

                  currently, duane kuiper's excited "he hits it high ... he hits it deep .. he hits it ... outta here!" for the giants is pretty decent.

                    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

                      Please tell me Duane uses it only when it fits, though -- otherwise it's no different from/better than John Sterling's call.

                        kuiper had good reason to yell it more often a few years back , and now has reason for his exaltation only once or twice a month or so.
