CHICAGO -- Dan Shulman is the play-by-play broadcaster for ESPN Radio at the World Series, and we had a fun conversation on Thursday's podcast about the best World Series calls ever. A discussion like this is wholly subjective and entirely fun because it draws upon the best memories.

So here's a list of 12 (including a 1 and 1a). It may not be your list, it's probably not the best list, but it's my list, helped along by a lot of feedback on Twitter.

No. 11: Gary Thorne's call of Scott Brosius' game-tying homer in Game 5 of the 2001 World Series. (You can watch it here.) The backdrop to this was that in the bottom of the ninth inning in Game 4, Tino Martinez had hit a game-tying two-run homer -- the first time that had happened since 1929. And then Brosius did the exact same thing the next night, and the incredulity and shock is evident in Thorne's call.

No. 10: Dick Stockton's call of Carlton Fisk's walk-off homer in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series.
