Vin will be back in '09
Not only did last night deliver a resounding shutout victory to pull the team to within have a game of first place, but the incredible news is out…Vin Scully will be behind the mic for his 60th season of Dodger baseball.
Anyone who has been fortunate enough to even hear an inning of his work over the years knows that we are truly blessed with every game that he does. Just yesterday, as I stopped in the booth to check in with him on a couple of things, I happened to be there when he taped the “open,” which is what you see at the top of the telecast each night.
Amazingly, without any notes in front of him and no teleprompter, he just rattles off some of the most incredible prose, mixed in with statistics and stories that I can’t understand how he remembers. It’s really something else.
In any event, in case you missed it, I wanted to make sure you knew the great news and hopefully we’ll see many of you at the park today. If not, tune into FOX for the big duel for first place in the NL West…we’ve been this close many times before, but haven’t been atop the division since April 4. If there were ever a time to be playing great baseball, this is certainly it.
P.S. No lineup again today.
