    Has anyone else called more great baseball moments than Marty?

    -Hank Aaron breaking Ruth's record

    - 3 no hitters, one perfect, one postseason

    - 4192

    - 3 World Series wins

    That's all I can think of at the top of my head...

    It wasn't great for the Reds, but he had Fisk's home run didn't he?

    And he had Hank Aaron's tying homer, not the one that broke it

    Not sure...I think Hank Aaron beating Ruth was his first call...on his first regular season game in 1974...

    Hmm.. he broke the record against Al Downing & the Dodgers, why would Marty have been doing that game? I always heard it was the tying home run that was hit at Riverfront

    The Downing game was the Monday GOTW, watched it in the basement on the Zenith

    He did some that didn't involve the Dodgers too, like the Bill Buckner error in the 1986 World Series

    Mel Allen had to call some amazing games with his tenure of 1939-1964 with the Yankees.
