Vin Scully turned 85 Thursday. Earlier this year, Keith Olbermann put his longevity in perspective with this tweet:
Mickey Mantle debuted in NY in an exhibition vs
#Dodgers, 1951. Bryce Harper debuts vs Dodgers tonight. Announcer then and now? Vin Scully
Last year, KTLA in Los Angeles assembled a clip of Scully’s top 5 calls. There are a couple obvious ones in there, but there is a surprise or two. For instance, I only heard Milo Hamilton and Curt Gowdy’s calls of Hank Aaron’s 715th homer. You forget Scully also was there as the voice of the Dodgers.
