Vin Scully preparing to call final Dodgers game
SAN FRANCISCO - After more than 9,000 games, 21 no-hitters and three perfect games, Vin Scully is preparing to call the final game of his 67-year career for the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Giants in San Francisco on Sunday.
The 88-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster has reduced his travel in recent years, but he made an exception to call the team's last three games of the regular season in the Bay Area. The NL West champion Dodgers are headed to the postseason, but Scully won't be working those games.
Scully's call of Sunday's game will be simulcast in its entirety on two Los Angeles TV stations and one radio station. The Giants plan to air his description of the third inning on their broadcast.
Last weekend, Scully was farewell-feted by Dodgers fans in Los Angeles, where he closed out his final home game with him singing a pre-recorded version of "Wind Beneath My Wings."
