MLB Radio Brings Vin Scully’s Final Call Nationwide

0

vin_scullyOn Sunday, Major League Baseball’s most iconic announcer will call his last game.


Vin Scully began his career in 1950 at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn for “Dem Bums.”

Sixty-seven years later, he will end his career as the voice for the Los Angeles Dodgers at the home of its decades-long arch-rival, the Giants.

Like Scully, the Giants moved from New York to California, landing in San Francisco.

And, like the Dodgers, they’ll be honoring the great for his monumental career in a special ceremony set for AT&T Park. CSN Bay Area will simulcast the third inning of Time Warner Cable SportsNet L.A.’s coverage, as will the Giants radio flagship — Cumulus Media’s Sports KNBR-680. Meanwhile, KTLA-5 in Los Angeles (as previously announced) will be providing a simulcast of SportsNet L.A.’s coverage so all Dodgers fans in the Southland can enjoy Scully’s swan song. Scully will also call all nine innings of the game for the Dodgers’ radio flagship, iHeart’s KLAC-570 in Los Angeles.

Nationally, Scully’s KLAC broadcast will be available on MLB Radio, including its TuneIn stream — giving baseball lovers nationwide the ability to enjoy the legendary announcer’s last call.

Scully has called just three road games this season. But he will be in San Francisco for all three games of the season.

In an interview with CSN Bay Area, Scully noted, “My last game with the Giants will be October 2. That will be exactly 80 years to the minute from when I first fell in love with the game. So, it seems like the plan was laid out for me, and all I had to do was follow the instructions.”

Game time is set for 12:05pm Pacific.
