"It's a mere moment in a man's life between the All-Star Game and an old timer's game." –During the 1980 Major League Baseball All-Star Game held at Dodger Stadium
Scully quotes
"The ability to throw 100mph cannot be taught, cannot be learned, it can only be God-given." –Commenting on Kenley Jansen's first pitching appearance in the MLB on July 24, 2010
Scully
"Vin Scully holds the distinction of the longest consecutive service of any current major league broadcaster for one team. When you think of Vin Scully, you think of the Dodgers.




Scully Vin quotes
"High (drive/fly ball) into (left/center/etc.) field, and deep. Back goes (fielder's name), a-way back, it's gone!" (Or "... to the [warning] track, to the wall, gone!")

"Vin Scully has the most musical voice in baseball. He doesn't have the clipped, old-time-radio cadence of most broadcasters who date back to the '50s and beyond. Although his timbre is thin, everything is smooth and rounded. The words slide into each other. He has flow. The melody rises and falls on the tide of the game. You can almost hum along to Vin Scully. He's often referred to as baseball's poet laureate, and those who don't get him parody him by quoting Emerson or spouting flowery language. But even though he will occasionally toss off some verse (he's likely to find the lyrics of an old show tune more apt) or call a cheap base hit "a humble thing, but thine own," the real metaphor for Vin Scully isn't poetry, or even music: It's painting. Other radio announcers can tell you what's happening on the field, and you can imagine it. With Vin Scully, you can see it. His command of the language and the game is so masterful that he always has just the right words to describe what's going on. He paints you a picture." – Gary Kaufmann in the Salon e-zine, 2000
Vin Scully quotes
"It's a passing of a great American tradition. It is sad. I really and truly feel that. It will leave a vast window, to use a Washington word, where people will not get Major League Baseball and I think that's a tragedy." –At the end of the last NBC Game of the Week, October 9, 1989)
Vin Scully
"Forget it." (This is his most popular home run call)
Scully Vin quotes
"As long as you live, keep smiling because it brightens everybody's day."
Scully
"At times I'll be listening to him and I'll think, Oh, I wish I could call upon that expression the way he does. He paints the picture more beautifully than anyone who's ever called a baseball game." –Dick Enberg
Scully Vin
"(Roberto) Clemente could field the ball in New York and throw out a guy in Pennsylvania."
Vin Scully
"As the voice of the Dodgers for over 40 years, Vin Scully is recognized as one of the truly great baseball announcers. To baseball fans, including the original Brooklyn Dodgers diehards, Vin is beloved as much as the game of baseball itself.




Vin Scully quotes
"Hi, everybody, and a very pleasant good (afternoon/evening) to you, wherever you may be."
