    He has had a million calls that I vividly remember and that are great, but the one I always think about that seems to stand out was Dunn's walk-off grand slam against Bob Wickman and the Indians in 2006 (I think).

    Tom Browning's perfect game. Not sure why, but I listened to this to get the adrenaline going before most of my law school final exams. Pretty sure it was a walkman and cassette tape back then. Can't remember how I got it onto a cassette.

    I agree albeit for a different reason. I will always remember the date of TB's perfect game because I got married the next day - the perfect game was 9/16/88. There was a rain delay during the game so the game did not end until after midnight. We had our rehearsal dinner that night at El Greco's...veteran BGPers will remember it - it was in Southgate, KY but has been closed for years. I dropped off my wife to be (and still my wife more than 30 years later BTW) at her parents house after the rehearsal dinner and listened to the last inning at her house. Marty's voice on the last pitch (for the K to complete the perfect game) was just a little different than I can remember before or since. It was a great call...

    Here is a nice link from the Reds website to a lot of Marty's calls.

    Favorite Marty Calls | Cincinnati Reds

    They have several categories including Classic Calls, Martyisms, Off Beat Marty and others. They have poll results from fan votes and a link in each category that includes the calls listed.

    The first sentence he utters when the baseball season begins. Also his salute when the Redlegs win, "And this one belongs to the Reds!"

    I'm guessing him encouraging fans to throw stuff on the field in the direction of Dave Pallone is out.....

    Jacob Brumfield's game winning double in 1993.... "Long fly ball,back into deep, deep, left-center field, that ball is off the wall, and this one belongs to the Reds!!!" Close your eyes and think about those words. It was the sound bite for the Reds on Radio advertisement from about 1994-1998.
