I haven't watched the Home Run Derby in years, it's worse than the NBA Slam Dunk Contest now, but I saw a highlight from a couple years ago (I think the year that Hamilton hit so many home runs) and Berman was HORRIBLE. Beyond horrible. I literally don't think I know a word that adequately describes how annoying he made the broadcast. The 'backbackbackbackback' home run call is bad enough during a game when you might hear it a couple times, it shouldn't even be considered remotely acceptable during a home run derby.
