Vin Scully

first_imgOn November 29 Vin Scully, the long-time broadcaster for the LA Dodgers turned 87.  This in itself is remarkable, but the fact that he has been broadcasting Dodger games continuously since 1953 is even more impressive.  For those of you who are not math majors, this is 61 years.  He is scheduled to broadcast the games again in 2015.Two honors that are very important to Vin Scully are his induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982 and being the Grand Marshall for the Rose Parade last year.  Vin was born in the Bronx so he grew up with the Brooklyn Dodgers and he moved with them to Los Angeles.  He has also done NFL games and PGA golf tournaments.  No one can match this longevity record.last_img
