The Voice: Dodgers Broadcaster Vin Scully Profiled On CBS Morning Show

Some fans consider Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully the poet laureate of baseball
Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully yesterday was profiled on “CBS News Sunday Morning," with CBS’ Lee Cowan noting that Scully’s “melodic voice has been the soundtrack of the Dodgers since 1950, when they were still the Brooklyn Dodgers.” Scully said, “It’s been a sport that I’ve loved ever since I could throw a ball.” Cowan said Scully “isn’t just an announcer, he’s a storyteller.” Many fans "consider him the poet laureate of baseball.” Scully said of his iconic call of Dodgers RF Kirk Gibson’s pinch-hit home run in Game 1 of the ’88 World Series, “I have no idea where that came from and that’s the fun of it if you get a good one off once in awhile.” Cowan said after 63 years, Scully has "won nearly every award possible.” Scully last month signed an extension with the Dodgers for “at least one more season” with the “blessing of his family and the adulation of the fans.” Scully: “There’s no way I could say goodbye to all of this, not yet anyway” (“CBS News Sunday Morning,” CBS, 9/16).
