Scully signs off for last time with Dodgers
SAN FRANCISCO - Vin Scully has signed off for the last time, ending 67 years behind the mic for the Dodgers.
After pinch-hitter Rob Segedin flied out to left field to end a 7-1 loss to the Giants in San Francisco, Scully spotted the umpires bidding him farewell from the field.
Scully closed his broadcast by telling viewers, "I have said enough for a lifetime and for the last time I wish you a very pleasant good afternoon."
His work wasn't done just yet.
Scully narrated a video of his own career highlights before he returned to the screen with a message that was taped before the game.
He told viewers he'd "miss our time together more than I can say."
Then he closed again, reciting a familiar and favorite line among Dodgers fans: "This is Vin Scully wishing you a very pleasant good afternoon wherever you may be."
