R.I.P. Vin Scully


R.I.P. Vin Scully

Unfortunately it seems Vin Scully didn’t want to see Joey Gallo in a Dodgers uniform either.

RIP to perhaps the greatest voice baseball has ever known, at least in my lifetime. Everyday I turn on MLBTV I always wish for a unique voice and personality calling the game (Scully, H. Caray, Uecker, the real J. Buck). I lament those losses when I listen to the robotic/corporate “Stepford” announcers of today.

Re: R.I.P. Vin Scully

I'm still processing his passing. I couldn't say it better than Dave "Smoke" Stewart did:
Vin Scully, there will never be a voice in baseball like Vinny. He was the standard for broadcasting. As he said it, you could see it, feel it, you were at the park. Vinny loved his family, baseball and the @Dodgers. RIP Vin Scully. My prayers to your family.

Denny Matthews in his 54th year at KC is worth a listen as well. No one can touch Vin though. I am a Dodger hater but could always listen to Vin Scully.
My best memory is listening to his call of the 1986 WS game 6. The ball between Buckners legs. Sitting at the bar at Rudy's next to the Yale campus in New Haven Next to a 78 year old Red Sox fan who thought he was going to see his team finally win a WS.
Classic Scully call. R.I.P. Vin.

Re: R.I.P. Vin Scully

My favorite call by Scully was the Kirk Gibson homer off of Eckersley in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. Actually, the entire at bat was great.

My current favorite radio guy is Tom Hamilton of the Guardians.

Re: R.I.P. Vin Scully

Dodgers fans who remember the great Vincent (Vin) Scully know he was the best there was. He coud add color to the game of baseball like no other. As a life long Dodgers' fan, I too like many others, hang on ever description of every pitch, strikeout, hit, great play or home run. Listening to him was like listening to music..........
