Vin Scully, a Voice for All Sports, Also Blessed Golf With His Distinct Style

“Would you like to see perhaps the wildest moment in the history of any professional sport? There goes the commissioner!”

–CBS golf announcer Vin Scully, 1982 Players Championship

No voice of legends past will rest in greater peace than Vincent Edward Scully, whose death earlier this week at age 94 etches a generational borderline between the good old days and tomorrow’s uncertainty. Best known for his 67 years as the play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Scully also spent seven years anchoring the golf coverage at both CBS and NBC. His partnership in the booth with Lee Trevino remains one of the better duos in the game’s TV history, made memorable by Scully’s knack for unwrapping the Merry Mex’s gift of gab.
