Sportscaster Vincent Edward Scully was from America. He was born in The Bronx, New York, on November 29, 1927, and died there on August 2, 2022.
He was best known for his 67 seasons, starting in 1950 (during the time when the team was situated in Brooklyn) and lasting through 2016, as the play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball.
In terms of the number of years spent working for the Dodgers organization in whatever capacity, his time as a game announcer was the longest of any broadcaster with a single club in the history of professional sports, trailing only Tommy Lasorda (by two years).
His tenure was the longest of any sports announcer with a single team in history. His record-breaking run as the club’s play-by-play announcer came to an end in 2016, when he retired at the age of 88.
Scully was renowned for his instantly identifiable voice, musically descriptive style, and catchphrase at the start of Dodgers games, “It’s time for Dodger baseball!” He is largely recognized as the finest baseball commentator in the sport’s history,
according to assessments made by fans, Bleacher Reports and Fox Sports. During his final season behind the microphone, Scully called the bulk of Dodgers home games (as well as a few away games), which were televised on SportsNet LA television and KLAC radio.
