According to TJ Simers of the LA Times, the Dodgers have asked season ticket holders for their thoughts on the greatest announcer in MLB history:
On a scale of 1 to 5, “They wanted my opinion of Vin Scully in the following eight areas: 1. Knowledge of baseball; 2. Knowledge of Dodgers organization; 3. Objectivity; 4. Accuracy of calls; 5. Storytelling ability; 6. Focus on the game; 7. Style; 8. Overall performance.
Ordinarily, I’d applaud a team for pretending to care what fans think. It’s too bad the Yankees don’t do this sort of thing (or do they? I’m not a season ticket holder). But Vin Scully? He’s above reproach.
Dodgers fans – or rather, what’s left of the Dodger fanbase – you have the floor. [LA Times]
