Over the course of his 62 years in the booth for the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers, legendary broadcaster Vin Scully has covered some of baseball’s most memorable moments and uttered a bevy of indelible calls and insightful quotes. This famous line about “the Hawk” during a 1991 game between the Dodgers and Cubs is my favorite.
“Andre Dawson has a bruised knee and is listed as day-to-day. Aren’t we all?”

Scully is the best!
He is the best. He is an artist. He paints a picture of the game, the crowd, the weather, and everything else going on. The title of his book, “I Saw it on the Radio” is great, but after watching a few Dodger games lately, I would say “I Heard it on TV”. No annoying analysts trying to compete with each other and the viewers attention, just informative verbal paint strokes by the Picasso of his craft.
