John Sterling's HR call: "Giancarlo, non si può stoparlo! It is a Stantonian home run." (The first part of the phrase roughly translates from Italian to, "Giancarlo, you can't be stopped!", though the proper Italian word for "stopped" is "fermare." Sterling appeared to use "stoparlo" for rhyming purposes, though he used "fermarlo" on later home run before switching back to "stoparlo".)

Sterling also used this call for Stanton: (singing) "Non dimenticar, that ball sure traveled far! Giancarlo! It is a Stantonian home run." (The first part of the phrase translates to "Do not forget.")
