  • Vin Scully

    Watching a Los Angeles Dodger baseball match without Vin Scully announcing the same is akin to eating a hamburger without ham! In sport broadcasting history, Vin Scully is a name to reckon with. His 67 seasons and association with the Dodgers, from their Brooklyn Dodger days to their Los Angeles Dodgers ones, as their broadcaster, is the longest ever tenure by any broadcaster in professional sports history with a single team. Scully since an early age was enthralled listening to football broadcasts on radio and dreamed of becoming a sports broadcaster one day. His dream realized when he took up the profile of a student broadcaster and journalist at the Fordham University. His first ever professional experience came with broadcasting a match for the CBS Radio Network by Red Barber in November 1949. The following year, he was first inducted in the Brooklyn Dodger team as one of the announcers in its radio and television booths. No sooner he became the play-by-play announcer of the team, and remained with the team till 2016. Interestingly, what has made him different from his counterparts is his wider vision and complete know-how of on and off field events. He tried to infuse his knowledge about the current affairs and how the same was related to a particular game within his broadcasting. Adding to the same was his impressive style and unique signatory description, ˜It's time for Dodger baseball!'
