My dad loved watching Dodger games with the TV sound muted and the radio in the background, playing Vin Scully’s voice to complement the moving pictures on the screen. Scully could commentate a baseball game like no-one else.
His last game calling the action with the Dodgers will be on October 2, 2016 as they face the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park.
ESPN put together a some memories from Scully’s 67 season career.
Sandy removes his cap … wipes his index finger across his left brow, dries it off on his left pant leg, readjusts the bill of his cap. I imagine that the mound at Dodger Stadium must be the loneliest place in the world. There are 29,000 people here … and about a million butterflies.
