Vin Scully is a legend of baseball broadcasting, after 67 years covering the Los Angeles Dodgers — the longest any broadcaster has ever been with a single team.
The fact that Scully is soon to retire adds special poignance to anything he says on air this season, so Dodgers fans loved it when Scully fell for a little baby who appeared in a cutaway shot during a recent game. Adopting a lilting voice, Scully seemed as if he was almost trying to sing the youngster to sleep.
Scully called the incipient nap almost like a baseball play. "Dad's doing his duty! He's got a wide-eyed beauty. Trying to put the baby to sleep...he's gaining on it! The sandman is coming, the sandman is...no, you don't want to go to sleep."
