Vin Scully is not only a Dodgers great, but he is also a universal baseball great — and this from a steadfast Giants fan who was born and raised in San Francisco and fondly remembers going to the old Seals Stadium back in the late 1950s with his parents after the Giants had moved to the City by the Bay.
I feel indeed fortunate when I am able to listen to Mr. Scully broadcast a game between the two California archrivals.
During the many games he has announced, I have never found him to be caustic, insulting, mean-spirited, negative or crude.
Scully is a professional who thoroughly does his homework regarding teams and players so that he always has interesting, informative and positive comments, stories and anecdotes to relay.
He does not just announce the game’s hopefully exciting action. He also never ceases to entertain, educate and inspire his lucky listeners.
This is one Giants devotee who respectfully views the perennial Dodgers announcer, Vin Scully, as a true example of a gracious, outstanding representative of a classical gentleman of the old school.
