Video: Umpire Tom Hallion Greatest Strikeout Call Ever on Ryan Howard

The pitch by Brian Wilson and his beard was a borderline strike (it was also a nasty cut fastball).

Ryan Howard though has to go out swinging, you can not take a pitch that close when you are known to strikeout 22827664 times a year, so he has no one to blame but himself.

What is undeniable though, was the strikeout call by Tom Hallion was epic.

It will be replayed millions of times and for a moment I thought maybe it was Kramer (or Elaine for that matter) from Seinfeld behind the plate.

In a 100 years he could never duplicate such a brilliant strikeout call, if they had Oscars for strikeout calls, Hallion would be Gone with the Wind (I hope Gone with the Wind won an Oscar, I guess I could check please hold…………I am back, it won 8 Oscars so I am good).

I am sure Phillies fan won’t get a kick out of this, but look on the bright side at least you have “Michael Kolb” as your starting quarterback.
