Scully’s career covered many of the game’s greatest moments
Kirk Gibson’s 1988 World Series home run, Wrigley Field’s first-ever night game and Fred Lynn’s All-Star Game grand slam.
These are some of the most memorable moments in baseball history, and they were all shared with the world by one legendary voice: Ford C. Frick Award winner and longtime Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully.

“More than anyone, Scully made the Dodgers successful in Los Angeles. He was the biggest asset we had coming to California.”
As his baseball broadcasting career grew, Scully still kept himself busy in the offseason, calling tennis, golf and football telecasts for CBS from 1975-1982. His final NFL broadcast for CBS became one of the most memorable moments in football history, when Dwight Clark caught Joe Montana’s touchdown pass in the fourth quarter of the 1982 NFC Championship Game to send the 49ers to the Super Bowl.
When Vin Scully finally retired in 2016, at the age of 88, he did so as the longest-tenured, single-team broadcaster in professional sports history.
