A Scully Classic

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Vin Scully, the greatest of all sports broadcasters, made his greatest call on September 9, 1965 when he called Sandy Koufax's perfect game.

The text is here. The audio is here.

Yet tonight, I discovered another Scully gem. This happened on June 30, 1959 and you have to hear it (or read it) to believe it. It's roughly 30 seconds of actual game audio, and eight minutes of a good old-fashioned rhubarb. The audio and text are here.

Boys and girls - you wanna be a broadcaster? Listen and learn, my friends. This is how it should be done.
