In 1950, Vin Scully broadcast his first major league baseball game for the then--Brooklyn Dodgers. Nearly sixty years later he still invites a listener to ''pull up a chair,'' completing a record fifty-ninth consecutive year of play-by-play.
Recruited and mentored by the legendary Red Barber, the New York-born Scully moved with the Dodgers to Los Angeles in early 1958. His instantly recognizable voice has described players from Duke Snider to Orel Hershiser to Manny Ramirez, with hundreds in between.
At one time or another, Scully has aired NBC Television's Game of the Week, twelve All-Star Games, eighteen no-hitters, twenty-five World Series, and network football, golf, and tennis. He has made every sportscasting Hall of Fame; received a Lifetime Emmy Achievement award and a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame; and been voted ''most memorable [L.A. Dodgers] franchise personality.'' In 2000, the American Sportscasters Association named Scully the Sportscaster of the 20th Century.
This long overdue biography of Vin Scully is written by Curt Smith, called 'the voice of authority on baseball broadcasting' (USA Today). Scully opens each broadcast by wishing listeners, ''A very pleasant good afternoon.'' Pull Up a Chair will provide a reader with the same.
