Vin Scully Calls Last Game At Dodger Stadium

For 26 outs, it looked like announcer Vin Scully’s final broadcast from Dodger Stadium would end in defeat, a dud ending to a storied career. But then Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager sent a towering home run to right field to tie the game. And in the 10th, little-used infielder Charlie Culberson hit his first homer of the year that not only won the game but gave the Dodgers the National League (NL) West crown. In the midst of their celebrations, Dodgers players and coaches alike turned to the press box to acknowledge the voice that’s watched over them for 67 seasons. Manager Dave Roberts grabbed a microphone to address the crowd and dedicated the victory to Scully. It was an appropriate send-off for a broadcaster whose career began on April 18, 1950, when the then-Brooklyn Dodgers opened the season against the Phillies in Philadelphia’s long-gone Shibe Park. While the Dodgers will head to the playoffs, Scully has already declared that his career would end with the regular season, an Oct. 2 game in San Francisco. Joe Davis will take over for Scully in 2017.
