Curt Schilling weighed in on YES Network’s Michael Kay during his call on Aaron Judge’s 61st home run Wednesday night in Toronto.
Appearing at OutKick’s “Don’t @ me with Dan Dakich”, Schilling wasn’t a fan of how Kay didn’t let the moment “breathe” as Judge rounded up the bases.
“I just wanted to see and feel the moment,” he said. “I didn’t need Michael Kay to explain to me that he had just hit his 61st home run and that he was more than anyone since Roger Maris. We all knew that. So he shuts his mouth and lets the moment breathe.”

Schilling, a three-time World Series champion, has broadcast experience after spending years in the ESPN booth. And in those times, he explained what he was taught.
“I was always taught, one of the things that I think helped me in the booth, was that there are some moments that speak for themselves,” he said. “I thought he was one of them. He could have said everything he said after the fact. Everyone who watched the game knew exactly what happened. They knew what the number was. But he’s also part of today’s announcers.”
