Vin Scully’s Best Moments and Calls

Baseball’s voice Vin Scully died Tuesday at the age of 94. Here are some of his best moments and calls in baseball.

The voice of Los Angeles Dodgers and baseball’s voice, Vin Scully, died Tuesday afternoon at the age of 94.

He was the voice of the Dodgers from 1950 to 2016, but he was more than that. For millions, he was the voice of baseball and even the voice of the sport.

He was the voice of NBC game of the week from 1983 to 1989. He did games at CBS Radio and even did other sports. From 1975 to 1982 he attended NFL games and golf games on CBS. Among other things, he called “The Catch” on CBS in the 1981 NFC championship game that secured the San Francisco 49ers a spot in the Super Bowl.

But he always returned to baseball and was there for big moments. Scully called 24 World Series, 11 of them on TV. He’s called 18 no-hitters, three perfect games (including the only perfect game in the World Series to date), Hank Aaron’s record-breaking home run, and many more iconic moments.

There will never be another Vin Scully on baseball or sports broadcasting. His longevity and storytelling skills (and perfect timing with them) will be second to none.

Below we have some of his best calls and best moments in baseball. For some of them, the full game is available on YouTube. We’ve queued the crescendo of these games, but you can see the entire game where it’s quoted.

There are also Dozens of his old regular season games available on multiple channels on YouTube. There you can see that Scully was a master of his craft, even though it could have been a normal regular season game in August in the late 1950s. Some of them even have the original commercials and advertisers in them.

So let’s take a walk down memory lane with some of his best moments and calls.
