Vin Scully Newsbeat
Thursday, November 17, 2016
You’d be hard-pressed to find a single person who’d have qualms with Scully’s honor … except for Scully, himself, of course.
When White House press secretary Josh Earnest called to tell Scully the news, the Dodgers’ legend responded:
“Are you sure? I’m just an old baseball announcer.”

...There was some guy on the internet selling full game broadcasts from the ‘50s-‘60s. He had some Dodger games so I bought them. I’m driving to the stadium one night listening to Vin call a game at Wrigley Field from 1966. I get so caught up in the drama of his description that when Ron Fairly hit a long fly ball down the rightfield line that just missed being a home run by inches I slammed my hand down on the dashboard in disgust. Then I thought, “This is insane. This game has been over for decades.” I told the story to Scully later that day and he said with mock urgency: “Oh, I hope we won.”
...One of the (many) amazing things Vin could do is recall plays and moments from games he saw 60 years ago. He then recounts them naming the specific players and game situations. He’s a walking baseball Google. And of course, no one else has that link with the past. No one else can tell Jackie Robinson anecdotes. I once asked him how he remembered all that stuff. He said he couldn’t just recall it at random, but something will occur in a game that triggers a memory. I said, “It’s very impressive. But how do we know you’re right?” He laughed and said, “You don’t.”

So, long, Vin.
I have a friend who doesn’t enjoy listening to Vin Scully. He’s in very, very small company.
