          It’s hard to believe that he’s no longer with us. Rest In Peace, Mr. Scully.
          This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

            To me, he was the voice of baseball. I remember Saturday afternoon games with Vin & Joe Garagiola; that's basically how I was introduced to the game as a kid. He had a great voice and an incomparable way of describing the action. And a real class act.

                  His call of Gibson's 1988 WS at-bat -- the entire at bat -- is the most beautiful sports play-by-play I've ever heard. From "Look who's coming up" to "In a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened." So many sports announcers try to put their stamp on everything; Vin just told us what he saw, but had a gift for language that elevated everything. He didn't need to get in the way of a moment to make a moment better. No "Santa Marias", no "Put it on the boards," no "See yas".

                  The other side of Vin's gift came when there were no big moments. You could be watching a meaningless game in which nothing is happening, and Vin would launch into a story about a fringe player's fishing trip or dental appointment, and would spread the story over a couple of innings, and you'd be completely riveted. I had an MLB audio subscription for years just so I could listen to the occasional Dodgers game and hear Vin at work.

                    Just a little outside. There is something to be said about being the very best at your craft. RIP.

                      Here is a link to that at bat.
                      The 'event'/at bat/call actually lasts for over 9 minutes.

                        ^^^ thanks for the link AD, just watched it in its entirety

                        A great announcer also knows when to shut-up and let the moment carry itself.
                        Vin was the best , RIP

                          It’s too easy to call someone an all-time great. And frankly, we all do it too much too often. But there are all-time greats and there are those who truly belong on lists by themselves. They have had that kind of impact on sports or on society and in some cases both. It may sound cliched but some make the world a better place.

                          There have been many terrific baseball announcers over the years. There was only one Vin Scully. He didn’t broadcast baseball as much as he orated his own unscripted version of Shakespeare in the ballpark, every night, all summer long. He told stories. His own soliloquies. He related facts. The noise from the crowd was so often his colour man in the booth. He was lyrical. Years ago, someone said you could listen to Vin Scully read from the telephone book and you’d be intrigued and no one represented a team and a time the way Scully managed to.
