Scully succinctly summarised his approach to the job in an interview from his final season in 2016: “I think it’s kind of a running commentary with an imagined friend.”

In Los Angeles There isn’t a single player, manager, or other member of the organisation whose name is synonymous with the Dodgers. Vin Scully is here.

It’s Time For Dodger Baseball! has been the opening chant for Dodgers fans at home and in the stadium for more than 50 years.

When the Dodgers were still based in Brooklyn, Vin Scully started broadcasting games on the radio before moving on to television. Before he retired after the 2016 season, he was an announcer for one team for the longest period of time in sports history.

The Dodgers tweeted their announcement of Vin Scully’s passing. He was 94.It was there from the start. One memorable time in 1957, catcher Joe Pignatano was coming up for his first at-bat as a Brooklyn Dodger. During the broadcast, Scully wanted to make sure the player’s family wouldn’t miss out. “Say, I tell you what. You might know the Pignatanos . If you do, maybe his wife’s taking care of the baby [and] and not listening to the game. Give her a call. Looks like Joe’s gonna break into the Major Leagues tonight .Scully was as much a part of the team as the players on the field. You could hear Scully’s voice emanating from radios people brought to Dodger Stadium. Some fans, like Cary Gepner , preferred his radio play-by-play to a TV broadcast without him. “You can listen to Vin Scully call a baseball game and you don’t need to watch the game because he paints a better picture than the television could ever paint. I love him.”

Vin Scully had baseball statistics ready. But he didn’t rely on them. He once said, “Statistics are used much like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support, not illumination.” It was the stories he told. They came from baseball, from Shakespeare, from anything he was curious about. Here’s an example from an interview with member station KPCC: “We were playing on Friday the 13th and I thought, ‘I wonder why the background of Friday the 13th, why it’s such a big deal?’ So I looked it up and it goes back to the 1800 so and so’s” .Fastball. It’s line drive into deep centerfield. Buckner goes back to the fence, it is gone!” For the next half-minute, Scully didn’t say a word. Taking it in as the Atlanta crowd cheered and roared the milestone. And then, Scully said, exactly what that homerun meant, “What a marvelous moment for baseball. What a marvelous moment for Atlanta and the state of Georgia. What a marvelous moment for the country and the world. A Black man is getting a standing ovation in the Deep South for breaking a record of an all-time baseball idol. And it’s a great moment for all of us.”
