With the way networks and TV deals work for the baseball playoffs, Dodgers Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully isn’t able to call Dodger games on TV.
Instead, Vin is calling the first three and last three innings of playoff games on the radio as Dodger fans everywhere mute the TV and sync the audio with the action going on. Well, last night Dodger fans were treated to listening to Vin call an incredible game as Juan Uribe’s two-run home run in the eighth inning sent the Dodgers to the NLCS.
Earlier this year, Vin announced that he would be coming back for one more season as the Dodgers move from KCAL and Fox Sports over to their own channel, SportsNet LA.
With all due respect to Ernie Johnson and the TBS broadcasting crew, nobody can set the stage or paint the perfect picture quite like Vin, so here’s his call of Uribe’s two-run blast.
