The passing of Vin Scully

Post by UplandRam »

Best announcer in baseball.
Period!

Vin Scully, who for more than 60 years was the voice of Los Angeles Dodgers baseball, has died.

The Dodgers announced Scully’s death on social media, calling the incomparable legend of the broadcast booth, “the heartbeat of the Dodgers.”

“He was the voice of the Dodgers, and so much more. He was their conscience, their poet laureate, capturing their beauty and chronicling their glory from Jackie Robinson to Sandy Koufax, Kirk Gibson to Clayton Kershaw,” the organization wrote.

Vincent Edward Scully was born on Nov. 29, 1927, in Bronx, New York. He began his legendary career at Fordham University, where he worked on the school paper and for the college radio station.

He latched onto the then-Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1950s and followed the team to the West Coast where he would become synonymous with Dodgers baseball for the next 67 season.

Scully retired from calling Dodgers games after the 2016 season, eight years after announcing his original plans to step away from the game he loved.

I would argue he is the best announcer ever in all sports. Think of all the different sporting events he called. I was lucky enough to be at Dodger stadium for his last broadcast.
A true gentlemen

The Aaron call of 715 @ 1:02 was so special.

And of course, 'The Catch':



Saw them live. Truly blessed.

We were so lucky to have two of the greatest announcers in all of sports, Chick Hearn and Vin Scully.
