Vin Scully Celebrations: Globe 1, Herald 0

Vin Scully, the legendary 85-year-old broadcaster who has called Los Angeles Dodgers games for lo, these last 64 years, has just re-upped for 2014, and the Boston Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy paid tribute to him in Sunday’s edition.

Ted Williams, Jimi Hendrix, Bill Russell, Leonardo Da Vinci, Jim Brown, Winston Churchill, Bobby Orr, Yo-Yo Ma, Muhammad Ali . . .

And Vin Scully.

The best who ever lived.

On Friday, the Dodgers announced that Scully will be back as team broadcaster for his 65th year in 2014. A humbled Scully, now 85, gracefully participated in a press conference, telling the assembled media that he wished the Dodgers had simply released the news with a single line in the evening’s game notes.

 

Classic Scully.

The Sunday Boston Herald had nothing.

Classic Herald.
