Anyone who was at the game last night..

Was the roll call done??


No it wasn't


What's being done is variation on roll call. At Yankee Stadium, Bleacher Bozos do roll call in top of first working their way thru defensive alignment, chanting players names 'til player acknowledges them.

At Shea, they're chanting player's name when he comes up to bat.....

Actually it's not a recent development.

In late 90's there was a brief period where for Olerud there were chants of "Johnny Baseball", "borrowing" from the Mattingly "Donnie Baseball"
And that was more a case of calling attention to accomplishments of the ultimate low-key guy (Olerud)

Also in 1999 NLDS when Melvin Mora first made his mark, there were roll call like chants of "Melvin Mora". And in this case, it was recognition of role player, and fan's acknowledging his contributions.


For what its worth, I think Yankee Roll call is corny. :lol:

They should prominently feature "The Curly Shuffle". Good to see they've started using it again. Should be a staple of between innings fare.

my 2 cents:

Roll call and the chanting of the name with the 5 claps, sorry yankee fans did come up with that


Roll call and chanting a player's name with 5 claps are two different things. Yankee fans did not come up rhythmic chants.

Unfortunately, the Yankees also came up with the idea of hot dogs, foul balls, and pants :(

It's like the FOX pregame show. Only bothering to look at one side of the equation.
