Happy Birthday, Vin!

I can't believe I had forgotten all about this special day. Eighty-four years ago a red headed kid named Vincent was born in the Bronx to a silk salesman and homemaker. As a youth, he would dream of being a sports broadcaster. First, he started calling Baseball, football and basketball games at Fordham University, then go on to have a successful career in the field as the Dodgers regular radio/television man for over 60 years. Today, at such a ripe age, he continues to entertain Los Angelenos with the style and wit that is unrivaled in any other market in the country. We are lucky to have him. Happy Birthday Vin!

For something really special, check out Tom Haffarth's post featuring a 1944 High School yearbook with a dapper senior named Vin Scully inside, here.

UPDATE: Check out this great interview between Scully and Koufax after clinching the 1965 World Series.
