Vin Scully (born November 29, 1927 in The Bronx, New York) is an American sportscaster, known primarily as the play-by-play voice of Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers baseball games.
In 47 seasons in Los Angeles, Vin Scully has become a beloved figure. His 55-year tenure with the Dodgers is the longest of any broadcaster with a single club in professional sports history. Scully has called six World Series victories and 14 National League pennants for the club.
Scully has received numerous honors: In 1982, he received the Ford Frick Award, inducting him into the broadcaster's wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Twenty-one times, he has been named California Sportscaster of the Year. He received the Life Achievement Emmy Award for sportscasting in 1995, and was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame the same year. The American Sportscasters Association named him Broadcaster of the Century in 2000.
In 1976, Scully was selected by Dodgers' fans as the Most Memorable Personality (on the field or off) in the team's history. In 1998, an L.A. Times Magazine feature article called him "The Most Trusted Man in Los Angeles."
