Maybe from now on, we just need to have ‘Vin Scully Week’ in the middle of the summer on this blog, and get all the Scully out of our system then. But even then, that wouldn’t work. Because like I told my wife – when she asked me when my autistic obsession with Vin Scully would end – “Hun, Vin Scully goes on forever to me”.
And that’s the truth.
The video below is of course from one of the magical moments and games of my baseball life. It’s an all-timer for me.
This was Scully’s send-off at Dodger Stadium. Before the Charlie Culberson homer that won it, before Vin’s rendition of ‘Wind Beneath my Wings‘ reduced me to tears; there was Corey Seager driving one towards the Montejo sign above the bullpen in right field.
It’s a 2-0 count, two out shot.
This one definitely gets filed away into my personal memory bank as an all-time special memory. It’s now encased here forever at Diamond Hoggers as our first Video Select of 2017.
