Foul ball: "a noisy strike"

· Web · 0 · 1

said by Dave O'Brien, Red Sox announcer at today's game vs. Orioles

@Algot he's not wrong, but what if it's a strike 2 foul?


This particular one was a long foul just to the right of the foul pole...with crowd noise, even with the small attendance at the game.

@Algot oh yes, so not an everyday occurrence. I love the phrase


I had never heard it before.

So far no help from Internet search.


The phrase apparently isn't new. I stopped looking after reading two uses.

@Algot I've never heard it before and I grew up listening to Phillies baseball on the radio. It's very apt.


You might enjoy how it's used in this story (which I haven't read in full, yet):
