Wiki

Vincent Edward "Vin" Scully (born November 29, 1927 in The Bronx, New York) is an American sportscaster, known primarily as the play-by-play voice of the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team. His 59-year tenure with the Dodgers (1950-present) is the longest of any broadcaster with a single club in professional sports history, and he's second only to Tommy Lasorda in terms of length of years with the Dodgers organization in any capacity (Lasorda joined the team a year before Scully). Named California Sportscaster of the Year twenty-eight times, he received the Ford Frick Award from the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982, and was honored with a Life Achievement Emmy Award for sportscasting and induction into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1995. He was named Broadcaster of the Century by the American Sportscasters Association (ASA) in 2000. In 2009, the ASA named him the top sportscaster of all-time on its list of the Top 50.
