Vin Scully was at the Pasadena Civic Center last night for “An Evening With Vin Scully,” and for some reason someone asked him for his thoughts on the NFL’s national anthem demonstrations. His response was unsurprising.
If there’s been anything wrong with the Dodgers’ otherwise near-flawless season so far, it’s only that Vin Scully hasn’t been in the booth to call it. While the legendary announcer is hopefully enjoying his long-deserved retirement, the crowd at Dodger Stadium was understandably thrilled to see him back for a pre-game…
You might be ready for the return of baseball, but Vin Scully isn’t arranging his day around it. The former Dodgers broadcaster told the Associated Press that he has no plans to watch the team’s first Opening Day game without him since 1950.
The Dodgers came back from a 3-2 deficit in the bottom of the ninth as Corey Seager’s solo homer forced extras and Charlie Culberson homered in the tenth for a walk-off win—one that claimed the division for L.A. and gave Vin Scully the chance to call one final walk-off in his last time behind the microphone at Dodger…
The Dodgers recognized Vin Scully’s 67 seasons as an announcer with a lengthy pre-game ceremony tonight—one that featured Sandy Koufax and Kevin Costner, among others—capped off by the man himself sharing some golden words with the gathered crowd:
Los Angeles Dodgers play-by-play announcer Vin Scully will retire at the end of the regular season, but before he does, he’s flexing his skills. Scully called Thursday’s Rockies-Dodgers game while also keeping track of Giants-Padres.
Tell us how you really feel, Vin!
I took a class about soil in college and the professor would always get mad if anyone called it dirt, but I think she’d make an exception for Vin Scully here, who wove an entertaining little yarn about how the Washington Senators would bring their own dirt to ballgames 100 years ago.
Longtime Dodgers announcer Vin Scully is going all out during his final stint in the booth. The season’s only a month old, and we’ve already had two great episodes of Storytime With Vin Scully. Two weeks ago, he debunked the myths surrounding the number 13, and this weekend he gave us the entire history of beards:
It’s storytime with Vin Scully, who is calling his 67th and final Dodgers season. His train of thought directed by an RBI single by Arizona’s Nick Ahmed, who wears uniform No. 13, Scully launched into a recitation of just how much the number 13 means to this great nation—with brief interrupts to call Austin Barnes’s…
You know Vin Scully—whose broadcasting career overlapped with Yogi Berra’s playing career for an astonishing 16 seasons—has a wealth of Berra stories, but his tribute to Berra on tonight’s broadcast began simply enough: “As long as people talk about the game, whenever they mention the name Yogi Berra, they will smile…
Would you listen to 10 minutes of Vin Scully talking about happy babies? Of course you would. Unfortunately, we only have half a minute here, but listen to it anyway. It’s quite relaxing.
87-year-old American treasure Vin Scully is returning to the broadcast booth. At last night’s Dodgers - Cubs game, via Jimmy Kimmel cue cards, the team announced that Scully would be announcing some more games in 2016, which will mark his 67th year doing so. Here’s the announcement:
Please enjoy this video from yesterday’s Braves-Dodgers game: Vin Scully, the official narrator of summer, tells the tale of the time a young Jonny Gomes saw his life flash before his eyes when he was tackled by a wolf. I don’t want to ruin the ending, but the wolf did not eat Jonny Gomes.
Update: It was probably in his pocket or something.
Vin Scully is a national treasure, Exhibit No. 973,948:
This is cool. The Dodgers announced Vin Scully was returning in 2015 for a 66th year in the Los Angeles broadcast booth. They showed a pre-taped skit during the game tonight, featuring Hyun-Jin Ryu, Yasiel Puig, and Justin Turner making the announcement. After the video played, the feed turned back to the stadium…
