Los Angeles Dodgers play-by-play broadcaster Vin Scully has called his last game
Scully was the voice of the Dodgers since 1950. He worked for the club for eight years in Brooklyn, New York before moving with the team to Los Angeles prior to the 1958 season. That's a span of 50 seasons.
Over his career, he also called games for the NFL, hosted an afternoon talk-variety show The Vin Scully Show, and co-hosted the Tournament Roses Parade in 1967 with Bewitched star Elizabeth Montgomery. Chris Carter, creator of The X-Files, named the character of Dana Scully (portrayed by Gillian Anderson) after him.
Scully, 88, has 4 children, 2 stepchildren, 16 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren.
