Cameron Maybin just hit his first major league homerun in his second career game, a 400+ foot shot to dead center off Roger Clemens at Yankee Stadium.
To hear Tim McCarver make the call, it was the greatest homerun in the history of homeruns and will earn Maybin immediate induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
I usually appreciate broadcasters who are energetic and seem to legitimately enjoy their jobs, but McCarver fits that bill and still drives me a little nutty. Yeah, it was a long homerun. Yeah, it guarantees that no matter how Maybin's career turns out, he'll have a cool story to tell his grandkids. But McCarver just came off as a little TOO excited about it.
