The greatest sports caster ever, Vin Scully died at his home in LA. He was 94.
He became the voice of the Dodgers in Brooklyn in 1950 and remained so through their first half century in LA, retiring after the 2016 season. 67 seasons with one franchise is a record for any major sport. Along the way, he became beloved by baseball fans everywhere regardless of which team they supported.
He was well known to be just as gracious in person as he appeared to be on TV and radio. Already tributes are pouring in from all over with players referring to him as a father figure.
To say he will be missed is an understatement.
Let me close instead with how he opened his broadcasts: “Hi, everybody, and a very pleasant good evening to you wherever you may be.”
