Heard On YES: Terry Crowley Is Lucky He's In F*cking Baseball

On last night's Yankee game telecast on YES, Ken Singleton was in the middle of talking about Orioles hitting coach Terry Crowley when, all of a sudden, an unknown voice made its way onto the air, saying, among other things: "Terry Crowley is lucky he's in fucking baseball." Here's a clip:




I couldn't believe how quiet it got in that booth after this happened! It was as if Singleton, John Flaherty and Michael Kay disappeared into thin air. There was nothing but dead air for what seemed like ten seconds! Luckily nothing was happening on the field for those ten seconds.

Where did this come from? According to another blog I saw, some have speculated that it was either a producer who was talking in Singleton's ear and accidentally got on the air or it was a YouTube clip of Earl Weaver that someone in the booth was watching. In any case, I think it's safe to say that the number one regional sports network in the country is a little red-faced right now. It'll be interesting to see how the rest of the media handles this one!
