Rod Allen’s “Second Deck” Home Run Call Is An Internet Sensation [VIDEO]

By: Evan Jankens

When James McCann hit a three-run home run Tuesday night against the Minnesota Twins that put the Tigers up 6-0 in the sixth inning, most people noticed the goofy face that Miguel Cabrera gave to the camera and not the call of the home run itself.

Tigers play-by-play man Mario Impemba said, “that went a long way, a three-run shot for the Tigers.” Then it happened. The color analyst for Fox Sports Detroit, Rod Allen shouted “second deck!”

Silence followed.

The problem was the speed in which he said it and the inflection he had on the two words made it sound like something you couldn’t say at work.

The Valenti and Foster show on 97.1 the Ticket, which is being co-hosted by Jeff Riger this week, had quite a bit of fun with the drop and so did Twitter.

This might be the best home run call in history and it wasn’t even intentional.
