They were talking today that up until Monday the history of baseball could be tracked in two people. Connie Mack was born during the civil war and was around when the league was first founded, and Vin Scully who started broadcasting in 1950 the last year Connie Mack managed in the major leagues. I remember laying in bed on hot summer nights and listening to Vin call Dodger/Giant games from the time I was about 8. It is truly a sad time for those of us that grew up in that era and loved baseball.
It’s amazing that he has been doing it for this long, and all for the Dodgers. Unbelievable longevity. As a Dodger fan, I have loved reading all of the tributes and memories that have been written about Vin this week. It sounds like he was as good of a guy as he was a broadcaster.
