Shameless Nelson fan and last-name sharer, 710 ESPN Seattle’s The Blitz host Lydia Cruz, compiled the best of the radio calls of Nelson’s 163 moonshots (including every “Boomstick, baby!” in radio existence), as a tribute to one of the best free agent signings in Mariners history.
For now, Cruz’s total of home runs for the Mariners will sit at 163. He officially signed a one-year deal with an option for 2020 with the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday.
