By 1953, Scully had worked his way into the booth for the World Series – becoming the youngest Fall Classic broadcaster. Scully then moved west with the Dodgers when they relocated to Los Angeles in 1958.
In Brooklyn, Scully was part of a Dodgers’ organization that won four National League pennants and one World Series title. And in Los Angeles, the Dodgers continued that success with three World Series championships in their first eight years in L.A.
“Vin Scully has never hit a fair ball for the Dodgers on the field, but he has never uttered a foul one off it,” wrote legendary Los Angeles Times columnist Jim Murray in 1970. “He is without peer at making 9-0 games something you want to hang around and see how they come out.”
During his time in Los Angeles, Scully began working on national telecasts such as CBS pro football and golf coverage as well as CBS Radio’s national baseball games. In 1983, Scully signed on to do NBC’s Game of the Week baseball package, pairing him with Joe Garagiola (the 1991 Frick Award winner) and later Tom Seaver. After NBC lost the rights to Major League baseball following the 1989 season, Scully returned to CBS Radio from 1990-97.
