But I don’t think Scully is the kinda guy who thinks his story is so important, he’s a truly humble person. Soon we’re left with the memories of Vin’s velvet voice announcing it’s time for Dodger Baseball and like a father invites us to join his game. Because that’s what he does: listen to the Dodgers play with Vin at the mike is listening to a game Vin makes.
Memories, luckily, are plentiful and put on vinyl, cd, dvd, you name it, Vin’s voice has graced every sound recording media. A great example is the record album ‘Dodgers ‘59’ on which Scully takes us back to Roy Campanella Night, the play-by-play of Koufax’fanning 18 batters and much more. If you can get you hands on it: get it!
I’m very excited to be able to attend the Vin Scully Appreciation Night. Will the Dodgers organization retire ‘his’ number? The number 67! For decades Scully worked for and with the Dodgers? The Brewers retired number 50 when Bob Uecker was with the Brewers organization for 50 years. I say: ‘Dodgers retire number 67!’
