One of the great things about the Nats playing the Dodgers in California is the chance to listen to Vin Scully do the broadcast. For perspective Scully was the broadcaster for the Jackie Robinson, Brooklyn Dodgers and the play by-play man for Bryce Harper‘s first game. Let that sink in a little bit….
Unless something changes, Scully now only broadcasts the Dodgers’ home games. His TV broadcast is simulcast on radio for the first three innings. It can be listened to with the MLB app.
Bonus: Here is a great anecdote from earlier in the season from USAToday:
Living monument to the grandeur of baseball Vin Scully doesn’t know everything, and he’s not afraid to admit it and ask you, the viewer, for help.
For example, after promoting a Twitter poll during the Dodgers’ 4-3 win at San Diego, Scully added, “Can I ask you an honest question, just between you and me? What in the world is a hashtag?”
