Brinson: Actual story about Madison Bumgarner told by national treasure Vin Scully last night on the Dodgers broadcast
Scully alternately tells a wonderful story about Madison Bumgarner and his wife, Allie, and calls a Howie Kendrick plate appearance.

Scully still does his research. Typically he doesn’t repeat information or stories about a player during a game. He has something new to say each AB. Contrast that with a lot of other announcers. Nothing grates on me more than hearing an announcer make the same comment on a player multiple times in a game. Take a spring game for example. I was watching the Dodgers. Each time Cody Bellinger made a play or came to bat the announcer repeated that his father was former Yankee Clay Bellinger. What was the point of repeating the info? If he had nothing to say, do something else Scully does on a regular basis during a broadcast, keep quiet and let the game noise flow over the audience.

FYI, Vin Scully is a long-time lurker on BBTF so, if you show him some love, he might read it.
Thanks for all the fond memories, Mr. Scully!
