The Los Angeles Dodgers are going back to the World Series for the first time since 1988. They absolutely crushed the Cubs on Thursday, with a final score of 11-1. Now all that is left is to find out whether they will play the New York Yankees or the Houston Astros.
Ever since the final out was recorded on Thursday, our mentions on Twitter have been flooded with fans begging the great Vin Scully to return for the World Series. Below are just a few of them!

Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news, Dodger fans, but it doesn’t look like Vin Scully is interested in making a comeback for the World Series.
Here is what Vin Scully had to say on the matter in an email from Friday morning, originally reported on by Tom Hoffarth of the Los Angeles Daily News:
I honestly don’t feel I belong there and I would not want anyone to think I was eager for a spotlight.
Vin Scully was at Dodger Stadium for the first two games of the NLCS, though his presence was kept pretty under-wraps.

Vin Scully is no stranger to the biggest stage in all of baseball. In his 67 years, Vin Scully called 25 World Series! Unfortunately, it seems like that number will remain at 25 after what he had to say regarding a return in 2017. The last World Series that he called was on the radio in 1997 and featured the Cleveland Indians and Florida Marlins. That makes it 20 years without hearing Vin’s sweet voice call the last games of October baseball.
