With the Colorado Rockies reportedly raising their walls in the outfield to help curtail some of the home runs this season, it left Michael Clair of MLB dot com wondering what other approaches by teams at their stadium would lead to awesome results. Well, let’s take a guess at what the Los Angeles Dodgers’ improvement might be.
If you guessed that the improvement and improvisation would mean that we actually get to hear the voice of legendary broadcast Vin Scully while the actual game was going on, then you’d be correct! But, it came with a twist — because of course it did. Yet, with that said, people will still enjoy this twist.
2. Dodgers – Speakers under the bases, so teams can listen to Vin Scully
Not only would this prove to be enormously popular because, c’mon, what person on this planet doesn’t want to listen to Vin Scully, but it will also be a handy way to distract the opposition. While the Dodgers will have special training to help them pay attention to the game, the opposition will likely be easily picked off while they’re too engrossed with one of Scully’s bonafide classic stories.
How cool would this be? Players on the field could actually get to listen to Vin Scully call a game and tell stories just like he’s been doing for longer than most of us have been alive. Teams would get to listen to him, enjoy him, and play a game while he serenades their ear canals with his soothing voice.
Vin Scully is one of the most iconic broadcasters in sports history, so players being able to hear him in real-time call their games would be one the highlights of any player’s life, and something they would treasure for eternity. Fans would just be smitten to hear him once this season.
