Let’s hope the Dodgers, in an 0-2 NLCS hole against the Cardinals, extend the series a couple more games. The longer the Dodgers stay alive, the more time it gives the folks in the MLB archives to dig up vintage clips of Vin Scully in action.
Last week MLB found a rare clip of Scully reading a promo during Don Larsen’s perfect game from the 1956 World Series. Monday they unearthed Scully interviewing Sandy Koufax after the lefty pitched a shutout in the clinching game for the Dodgers in the 1965 World Series win over the Twins.
48 years to the day later, Scully — now 85 — will still be at his place behind the mic at Dodgers Stadium calling the action in tonight’s NLCS Game 3.
Almost as remarkable, a postseason locker room interview where the reporter isn’t doused with champagne or lite beer. You wouldn’t dare try that with a legend like Scully, would you?
