Best baseball announcer ever.
I wasn’t a Dodgers fan but damn, he was good. One announcer I enjoyed listening to, no matter who was playing.
Wow. One of the greatest.
I’m not a Dodgers fan but when I went to UCSB in the early 1980s I vividly remember hearing his voice on the radio calling their games. It was… music, sweet music.
Rest In Peace Vin Scully.
I had no idea that Vin called The Catch.
MF…that one hits harder then any in the last few years.
He also did the Buckner error.
L.A.Times story of some of his famous calls.
“Andre Dawson has a bruised knee and is listed as day to day. [pause] Aren’t we all?”
Yep, aren’t we all.
“He pitches as though he’s double-parked.” — on Bob Gibson
“Little roller up along first BEHIND THE BAG! IT GETS THROUGH BUCKNER! HERE COMES KNIGHT AND THE METS WIN IT!”
“High fly ball into right field … she iiiisss GONE! And in a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened!”
RIP Vin; hope they serve Dodger dogs in the great beyond.
Here is his call of Kirk Gibson’s homerun. Note his sportscasting genius. For the first half minute he lets the crowd cheering do the sportscasting for him.
Any baseball fan in Southern California, Vin was a part of your like. TV and radio, he WAS Dodger Baseball.
