Vin Scully

Unlike any other sport, baseball has a connection to the people that cover the game. Vin Scully has had that job longer than any other announcer. He’s entering his 62nd year and shows no signs of slowing down. He’s had the opportunity to witness more history than any other announcer. In this GQ profile, Scully recalls some of his most vivid memories and demonstrates why he is one the greatest announcers the game has ever known.
