Quick Hit: Michael Kay Explains His “See Ya!” Home Run Call



Just a quick hit for you all as we wait on the beginning of the game between the New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics. I had heard this story before on a documentary or interview with the Yankees legendary announcer Michael Kay, but in case you haven’t he explained once again how he came up with his well-known home run call, “See Ya!” while on an interview with the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday.

Kay was quoted in the interview as saying:

“I got this job 27 years ago, and at the time I was dating a young lady who, when she would get out of the car at the end of a date she would say ‘see ya, wouldn’t want to be ya!’ and I said, ‘you know, I’m going to hijack that as my home run call.’ So, I’ve been doing it since the very beginning of when I got the job in 1992.”

Pretty interesting and cool little nugget of information for you in case you had never heard the story before. Now you know, and now it is almost time for Kay to say “see ya” about six or seven times this afternoon in the Bronx. Here’s to high hopes and even higher home runs. See ya!
