Chase Headley bashed his first home run as a member of the New York Yankees on Sunday and radio announcer John Sterling was ready for it.

In case you missed the long ball off the bat of the Yanks' third baseman, you can watch it by clicking here.

FOX Sports' Jimmy Traina shared Sterling's call on Twitter:

Keep in mind that without the audio of Sterling's call you can't really feel the full effect, although if you've heard Sterling enough over the years, you can definitely hear his voice in your head making the call.

Not only did Sterling own this call with the rhyme of Headley and deadly, but he also threw a banking reference in there as Headley shares a name with a popular bank used by millions.

This certainly wasn't Sterling's best call, although he didn't disappoint with it, either. If he wasn't happy with it himself, Sterling will have plenty of time to change it down the road.
