As you know, legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully will retire after the season. He’s been calling games since 1950, when the team was still in Brooklyn. There are only a handful of broadcasts remaining in his career.
Scully is not the only iconic broadcaster calling it a career this season. Padres play-by-play man and longtime MLB on NBC announcer Dick Enberg is also retiring this year. He announced it back in April.
The Padres are visiting the Dodgers this weekend, which means Scully and Enberg are calling the same series together for what figures to be the final time. The Dodgers do visit San Diego later this month, but Scully has cut back on travel in recent years.
So, prior to Saturday’s game, the two great announcers sat down for a chat about, well, baseball. About their careers, life as baseball, all sorts of stuff. Check it out:
West Coast baseball is going to have a decidedly different sound after 2016. That makes me sad.
