Broadcasting Legend Vin Scully Calling Baseball Legend Mariano Rivera’s Save Last Night Was Legendary [VIDEO]

Vin Scully, at 85 years old, is one of the best broadcasters in the history of sports. Scully has been the Los Angeles Dodgers play-by-play announcer since 1950. This is his 64th season calling games for the team, which is probably why he’s been called The Voice of the Dodgers.

There are some rare moments in sports when two legends come together and create absolute awesomeness. Last night, one of those moments happened when Scully got to call Yankees closer Mariano Rivera’s 1-2-3 save against the Dodgers, taking the opportunity to give a history lesson on Rivera’s career.

That was the last time that Scully will ever call a game involving Mariano Rivera, the best closer in the history of Major League Baseball. Soak it in, folks. Soak it in.

    Both of these people are truly amazing. I started listening to Vince in 1954 when they were the Brooklyn Dodgers and what more can you say about Mariano; the greatest closer in Baseball History and the classiest athlete of them all. God bless them both!

    Thanks for posting this. Vin Scully is one of the greatest figures in sports history and I wish more people had the opportunity to hear him. I can’t believe he can do what he does at this level at 85 years old.
