Biography

Sportscaster Vin Scully's silky voice and vivid turns of phrase transcend the sport of baseball. For over 60 years he has called games all by himself, painting word-portraits of the national pastime like none other. He stands with the great figures in the storied history of the Los Angeles Dodgers, predating the team's move from Brooklyn in 1958. Beyond Dodgers baseball, Scully's melodic tones have provided the soundtrack for some of the greatest moments in sports, including the fall of Babe Ruth's all-time homer run record, Bill Buckner's entry into infamy, and Joe Montana's most famous touchdown pass. Unequivocally, Scully is a national treasure and one of the best sportscasters of all time.
