I have the recording of the ninth inning of Koufax' perfect game. Vin Scully at his poetic best.
Spent many nights lying in bed as a boy listening to Vinnie and Jerry on my transistor radio. It was great they were on KFI with such a strong signal. 2 and 2 to Harvey Kuenn, one strike away, Sandy into his wind up......
Thanks Dansk for the reminder of the after game interviews with players from the winning teams.
Vin Scully was a part of my life growing up in the 60s and 70s. He and Jerry Doggett were the voices of the Dodgers. Vin was not just a great broadcaster, he was one of the true class individuals. His love of the game came through in all of his broadcasts. I know Giant fans, who hated the Dodgers, but always held a great respect for Vin. Vin and Jerry always did great interviews with key players after each game. If the Dodgers lost, that interview would be with a player from the opposing team. Always great interviews, and allowed us to know the players better.
Vin will be truly missed. Certainly, he lived a long and full life. Still a sad day.
