Jerez became famous by narrating ESPN Latin America's retransmissions of ESPN USA's ESPN Wednesday Night Baseball and Sunday Night Baseball with the home run catchphrase "Sólido, hacia el jardin (izquierdo, central o derecho), a lo profundoooo... y ¡no... nono, nono, no...! ¡Díganle que no a esa pelota!" This phrase is also played on highlight reels of the U.S. version of SportsCenter, e.g. the highlights of the Home Run Derby with Sammy Sosa.
