Good morning, Sports fans!   It’s Davey Mac back with another action-packed and thrilling Sports Report for ya!   We’ve got the baseball, basketball, and hockey!   But first!

Did you see Yankee rookie Anthony Volpe’s first home run and hear John Sterling’s call?   If not…we got you!

 

 

So what do you think?   Did John hit a home run or strike out with this call?   Apparently, “Volpe” means “fox” in Italian (Volpe is of Italian ancestry on his father’s side).
