The best in the business

Vin Scully, the Voice of the Dodgers, signed off for the final time today. Joining the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1950, Scully would follow the team to Los Angeles, spending a record 67 seasons calling their ball games.

Scully has called over 9,000 games over those 67 years. He announced 20 no-hitters, and was there for five Dodgers’ championship seasons. He called Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series and Sandy Koufax’s perfect game in 1965.

Vin Scully, you will be greatly missed.

    Greatest Dodger of them all. Gotta love the two product plugs in the photo: Schaefer Beer and Lucky Strike cigarettes–who remembers what LS / MFT slogan was the abbreviation for??

    Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco
    I only know that because my grandfather smoked Lucky Strikes.
