    Turn the volume up and remember the eight best home run calls in Major League history Baseball's iconic moments don't exist in a vacuum. We Marcus Stroman jersey remember where we were, what we were doing, the sights and sounds of the ballpark -- and, of course, the broadcaster's call. But while Major League history has given us plenty of memorable calls, Jose Bautista jerseys the question remains: Just which of them is the very best? Luckily, our list of the eight best home run calls ever is here to provide an answer once and for all. (But, should you disagree, feel free to let us know in the comments.) 8. Dave Niehaus, 1995 ALDS Game 4 Plenty of announcers have a signature home run call. But only Dave Niehaus, who served as the voice of the Mariners from the team's inaugural season in 1977 until his death in 2010, came up with a nickname specifically for baseball's ultimate scoring play, the grand slam. Whenever a Mariner cleared the bases, Niehaus would exclaim, "Get out the rye bread and mustard, Grandma, it is grand salami time!" He used that a lot over more than 30 years in the booth, but the call was never bigger or better than in Game 4 of the 1995 ALDS. Trailing the Yankees two games to one in the series, Seattle faced elimination at the Kingdome, and Game 4 went to the bottom of the eighth tied at 6. With their season on the line, the Mariners loaded the bases for Edgar Martinez, and both he and Niehaus did not disappoint: 7. Phil Rizzuto, Roger Maris' 61st home run Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle went swing-for-swing in the summer of 1961 Toronto Blue Jays jerseys , taking aim at Babe Ruth's single-season home run record. On Oct. 1 -- the final day of the regular season -- Maris sat at 60 dingers, with just a few chances left to rewrite baseball history. In his first at-bat, Maris flew out to left against Red Sox starter Tracy Stallard. Jose Bautista jerseys He stepped up again in the bottom of the fourth, and Stallard greeted him with two balls well out of the strike zone -- as the capacity crowd at Yankee Stadium showered the opposing pitcher with boos. And then, finally, Maris got something to hit If you are interested in jerseys. Please click:
