A Baltimore MASN Interview with Vin Scully

Since he doesn't travel much anymore they all come to him.

Below are a couple of videos recently shared by the the Baltimore Orioles television channel MASN that features the retiring Hall of Famer Vin Scully with broadcaster Gary Thorne.  As you know, Baltimore is currently playing the Dodgers in Los Angeles as part of an interleague match-up, so this provided a perfect opportunity for the American League club to reach out to Scully for an interview.

It is broken up into two parts and covers everything from Red Barber to Jackie Robinson to Sandy Koufax.  Some of the things I didn't know (or failed to remember) was that Peter O'Malley and Vin were roommates.  He also chatted quite a bit about his mentor Red Barber.  Probably best of all, though, was his description of numerous ballplayers he had an opportunity to know.  Take a moment and watch it all below.
