John Sterling Signing Autographs (Video)

John Sterling is the longtime radio announcer for the New York Yankees, broadcasting on WCBS 880, the Yankees flagship station. Sterling also hosts the “Yankeeography” program on the YES Network. In addition to doing play-by-play for arguably the most prominent professional sports franchise in the world, Sterling is widely known for his many catch phrases, particularly ones that play off of Yankee player names. The famous “It's an A-bomb from A-Rod” call is of course used when controversial star Alex Rodriguez hits a home run, while a Robinson Cano big fly results in a "Robbie Cano Don'cha know" outburst. Sterling is also well known for his over-the-top jubilation, after the Yankees record the final out of a victory. Sterling's unconventional style has made him a bit of a controversial figure among Yankees fans, despite calling New York games since 1989.

Tuesday afternoon, per the above original video, Sterling signed autographs for fans outside The Grand Hotel Minneapolis, in downtown Minneapolis. This scene took place a few hours prior to the Yankees game with the Minnesota Twins, with Sterling wearing a “Hip Hip Jorge” shirt, in honor of former Yankee catcher Jorge Posada.  

Sterling's eccentric nature was also on display, a couple years back, when he was spotted walking around a Southern California hotel lobby, wearing just a bathrobe. That story is available via this article.
