Vin Scully - The Greatest Ever!

What else is there to say. 60+ years in baseball. He is The Greatest Ever! I have been blessed all my life. After dinner on those warm summer nights, being able to turn on the t.v./radio and listen to that descriptive, beautiful, eloquent voice of his. Enjoying the Dodger game, no matter if they are winning or losing. He makes the games 10 times better. His knowledge of the game and his ability to know when to talk and when not to is unmatched. The topper is all his stories of those great ballplayers from years past. There is no other in all sports. I thank you Vinnie for entertaining my family and myself for so many years. You rule Vin!!! Go Dodgers!!!

Vin Scully, Best Sports Announcer EVER!
Posted by tollx26 | 6 years ago
Scully is one of the best but Mel Allen, Harry Kalas, Ernie Hartwell etc.. Longevity doesn't mean greatness!
Posted by Go Kings Go!!! | 6 years ago

True on the longevity part, but it helps. His body of work speaks for itself. For longer than any other sportscaster, he has done everything: MLB Regular Season and World Series games, College Football Regular Season and Bowl Games games, NFL Regular Season and Playoff games, PGA Golf, on and on. All of the top sporting events. Not just calling one team for 50 years. For generations he has given fans a warmth in describing the game like no other. His voice and the words he chooses is what makes him the best. He leaves out no details, while also letting the game and the plays speak for themselves. He trancends baseball. He is the truest gentleman the sports world will know. Loyal, Hard Working, and the most important thing any sports announcer can be.....unbiased. The others you mentioned are good....but not Vin Scully

Not necessarily a Dodger fan but I totally agree with you.
Posted by TheSportsDude | 6 years ago
I like Matt Milien.

Pretty amazing career. I put him up there with the best.
Posted by ajankowski | 6 years ago
I grew up in the New York area (born in the mid 50's) - and I never knew exactly who Vin Scully was exactly - but I sure knew his voice. When the World Series came around and we listened on radio - his voice would always be instantly recognizable. I used to look forward to hearing it year after year - and I still enjoy hearing it when I can. Yes, I was a fan of all the old time New York announcers (both Yankees and Mets) - but Vin Scully is by far the 'master' and deserves any and all lifetime awards.

Very well said!

Scully is getting old. Repeats storys I heard him tell over 40 years ago.
Posted by Go Kings Go!!! | 6 years ago

So is your mon and dad, but do you respect them less for that? I think not. Some of the stories, I will listen to a hundred times. Why you ask? Because once he is gone, so are those stories. There is no announcer in the history of sports who has done everything Vin has and with class to boot. His voice and style work with everything: World Series, Super Bowls, Bowl Games, PGA Championship Golf, Pro Tennis, etc..Just cuz he is old is no reason to dismiss all of his accomplishments.

I would also bet you are younger than Vin and have repeated yourself more than once before.

Posted by godux | 6 years ago
Very few in his class, the only difference being style of delivery by each of them ( I actually like Mel Allen and Steve Stone, who carried Harry Cary for so long about as well). There are others but at my age some of the names are lost on the tip of my tongue and don't outclass Vin, just belong in the conversation.. Can't think of anyone I am sure is better. But I've only been listening to broadcasts for 50 years and even then not to every announcer,

I liked Red Barber better.
Posted by Go Kings Go!!! | 6 years ago

That is your opinion and I respect that. In my opinion, Red Barber is good, but has nowhere near the list of credientials as Vin does. Red was just a baseball announcer with a few local New York pro and college games thrown in. Vin announced everything, for 61 years. Sure, he is known as the Dodgers annoncer, but he is much more than that. He has touched fans in every professional sport. Tennis, Golf, College & Pro Football, Minor League & Pro Baseball, etc...He also has more awards than any other announcer. He was named sports announcer of the year 29 times, and was named announcer of the century. The best thing about him, in this day and age of players and coaches changing teams so fast is, he has been with the Dodgers for 61 years. He shows a loyalty that nobody in sports has anymore. Again, the others are very good, but when comparred to Vin, they all come in a close second.

I would like to add there are so many great Broadcasters Harwell, Gowdy, Scyully, Kalas, Michaels, Thompson, Allen, Ned Martin.
Posted by bubmyc | 5 years ago
Vin is a sin to all other broadcasters. He is the best and will always be best! What makes him really unbelievable, he does a one man show! Not like the comedy team out in the west coast known as "Kup and Kipe"!
Posted by Go Kings Go!!! | 5 years ago
The LEGEND has just announced he is coming back for his....63rd year! Do you know why? Because the fans asked him to. What a great man. No better news for Dodger fans. God Bless you Vinny! You ARE the BEST!!! Thank You.

This is what I have to say about Vin Scully: I am a long, long time fan of the San Francisco Giants. After I moved, as a kid, from the Bay Area and moved to Phoenix Arizona the voices I heard calling baseball games at night in that area of the country was Vin Scully. A little later came Dick Enberg (calling the California Angels games).Scully has THE BEST sports voice in the UNIVERSE, bar none. Full of pertinent facts - he does paint a perfect picture when you can't be there in person. I hate the Dodgers, love Vin Scully!!!!

Just announced he is coming back for his 64th year with the Dodgers. The guy is 84 years old and doesn't stop. Looking forward to listening to the best broadcaster ever for another year. Thanks Vin. You are the Dodgers!

Nothing gives me goosebumps in sports anymore quite like the line "It's time for Dodgers baseball!"
Posted by tollx26 | 3 years ago
Just seen a poll where Scully was rightfully named Number 1 among broadcasters. Harry Kalas was surprisingly ranked # 2!!
Posted by Go Kings Go!!! | 3 years ago
He announced he is coming back for his 65th season in 2014. Not only that, he grand marshalled the Rose Parade. He also was just announced as the greatest announcer of all time. We are all blessed to have had him for so long!!! Thanks for all you do Vin!!! We Love You!!!
