Should Vin Scully come back to call baseball games? | The Tylt
For the first time in 67 years, Major League Baseball doesn’t have the silky-smooth delivery of legendary broadcaster Vin Scully to rely on. Over 17 years ago, Scully was named the No. 1 broadcaster of the 20th Century by the American Sportscasters Association, and with the Los Angeles Dodgers doing well, there is no one better to call those games than the Bronx native. However, after nearly seven decades of work, Scully has earned his retirement. What do you think? 🎤 ⚾
Should Vin Scully come back to call baseball games?
No one was better in the biggest moments than Vin Scully. The kid from the Bronx had a gift for making the big plays bigger, and the mundane plays more entertaining with his polished voice.
The legendary broadcaster was the perfect one-man show. Not only did he provide you a colorful picture of what was happening on the field, he would seamlessly weave in a great anecdote in the middle of the action when calling balls and strikes weren't enough.
There have been many great broadcasters, but no one made you feel like he was talking to you and you only quite like Scully. There's a warm quality to his broadcasts that cannot be duplicated, and fans need to have his presence back in baseball. Come back, Vin!
retweet if you miss hearing Vin Scully broadcast the games 😭💔💔💙⚾️— ａｎｇｉｅ (@angie_giraffe) July 9, 2017
All good things come to an end—even. There will never be another Vin Scully, and that's okay. After 67 years of service, he has earned the right to retire in peace and spend time with his family.
With Scully enjoying the game from home now, it has allowed Joe Davis to step in to become the new voice of the Dodgers. Scully will always be a legend, but the in order for the game to evolve, we all need to move forward. That means changes in teams, rules, and even broadcasters.
After becoming the longest tenured broadcaster with a single team, and recognized as one of the greatest personalities in the business, Scully has earned the right to live out his remaining days in the comfort of his own home. Stay at home, Vin. We miss you, but we got this.
