I am really getting excited for the start of the baseball season about now. Part of me is very sad about it as well though. This is because, following this season long time Los Angeles Dodgers announcer Vin Scully is retiring. Although most people only know Scully as the voice of the World Series in the 70s and 80s, with memorable calls such as the infamous Bill Buckner incident in game 6 of the 1986 Series and the heroic Kirk Gibson pinch hit walk off home run in game 1 of the 1988 Series, to anyone born in the greater Los Angeles area in the past half century, Scully is the voice of not only the Los Angeles Dodgers, but baseball as a whole. I personally love how Scully seems to simply refuse to correctly pronounce the names of foreign born players, notably pronouncing Dave Concepcion’s name as “Dave Conception”.
