Every season brings along changes for the Yankees, but one constant -- at least for the past 25 years -- has been John Sterling doing play-by-play on the radio.

Even with the Yankees' radio broadcast moving from WCBS to WFAN, Sterling continues to bring a flair to calling a game with his infamous home run calls. Whether singing a ditty or making a play on words as a ball leaves the park, Sterling always provides entertainment.

Listen to his calls from a few 2014 roster additions -- Yangervis Solarte, Brian McCann, Dean Anna and Carlos Beltran -- as they hit their first homers in pinstripes in the video below.

And don't forget to vote on the best and worst of Sterling's calls.
