Vin Scully while Ethier destroys bat rack: ‘Get it out, son’ (VIDEO)

Things that stink in life: Missing your school bus, losing your lunch money to a bully and making an out during a big game. And that last reason was why Andre Ethier used his bat to vent his frustration in the dugout after lining out to the Athletics' Ike Davis Tuesday night.And, as always, there was the soothing voice of Vin Scully to turn the big leaguer's tantrum into a calming...

Leave Len Kasper alone about the silly, phony, non-existent announcers’ Jinx

Chicago Cubs play by play man Len Kasper is one of the brightest announcers in baseball.  He uses analytics, he interacts with fans, he’s everything you want in a modern day baseball announcer.  Kasper and analyst Jim Deshaies form one of the most enjoyable local broadcast teams in the country and they fill the shoes of some legendary Cubs broadcasters quite well. One of the...

It is 66 years and counting for Vin Scully

The Washington Post’s Chuck Culpepper, one of the best in the business, talks to the all-time best, Vin Scully. Culpepper writes on Scully’s staggering longevity: This is Vin Scully’s 66th season broadcasting Dodgers games. Sometimes, if you repeat the truth enough, it can become almost believable. Yet long past 1950 when he started mid-century, on past the end of one century...

Vin Scully told three incredible D-Day stories on Saturday

The All Vin Scully Team Includes 3 Cardinals

The Cardinals have finished their season series with the Dodgers (posting a winning 5-2 record) which is nice. On the other hand… no more Vin Scully unless the Cards meet Los Angeles in the playoffs. Which is not so nice. Rick Hummel of the Post-Dispatch caught up with Mr. Scully and asked him if he’d sketch out his all time team (non-Dodgers) and because Mr. Scully is amazing...

WATCH: Vin Scully narrates fan's marriage proposal

Engagements at sporting events are usually pretty awful. Well, unless Vin Scully is calling the game you get engaged at, of course. I love when Vin’s stories go nowhere. It’s so endearing, and he doesn’t try to force a punchline or moral into the story if there’s not one there. But if you’re this couple, imagine your engagement being filmed…and having Vin Scully...

Vin Scully on baby: “he’s smuggling golf balls in his mouth”

Vin Scully is a national treasure. During Friday night’s Rockies-Dodgers game, the camera cut to a puffy-cheeked baby in the crowd, and Scully described the child like only he could. That’s perfect, though I think that baby isn’t big enough to fit golf balls in his mouth. The post Vin Scully on baby: “he’s smuggling golf balls in his mouth” appeared first on Awful Announcing.

Clippers announcer Ralph Lawler slurred speech raises alarms

Out of all the local announcers in sports, Los Angeles Clippers play by play man Ralph Lawler is one of my favorites.  The 76 year old longtime announcer may not have the national notoriety of the likes of Vin Scully or Chick Hearn working in the same city (after all, the Clippers aren’t exactly as renowned as the Dodgers or the Lakers) but he’s equally beloved by the team...

Vin Scully is willing to mentor his successor

In a perfect world, Vin Scully would be the voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers forever. But Scully is 87 and human, and eventually, it will be time for Dodger baseball with someone else behind the mic.

There hasn’t been a rainout at Dodger Stadium since 2000, and there have been only 17 rainouts since the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles in 1958. For whatever reason, the Dodgers grounds crew was practicing their tarp rolling skills before Sunday’s game with the Diamondbacks, and Vin Scully used that as an opportunity to educate us on the history of rain at Dodger Stadium while...
