Today: Vin Scully talks to us through a late-season matchup between Zack Greinke and Madison Bumgarner.
We opened the Filling the Void series with a different Bumgarner/Greinke duel, but as the season creeps closer we thought it was time to revisit this pair. This time, we’re adding in the velvet tones of the incomparable Vin Scully.
Vin Scully is the greatest baseball broadcaster of all-time, and I will absolutely fight you on that. There is no one better. The man is one of a kind. And he has the resume of great calls to prove it.
It’s been quite some time since he’s been back in the booth, even turning down the chance to call a World Series game a few years back. And since baseball’s on the horizon, why not ease back into baseball with Vin?
It’s never a bad time to listen to Vin weave an effortless tapestry of baseball, history and the only stories that could come from his time as behind the microphone.
Is this game of great importance? Does it hold any historical merit? No. However, to hear Vin Scully call it, you would think it does.
So here’s Vin Scully, the voice of the boys of summer, walking us through another late summer gem. What could be better than that?
We’re several months into our worldwide attempt to “flatten the curve” and have been offering daily escapes into the sporting events of yesteryear through our “Filling The Void” series. We’ve looked back on the inspiring, mind-boggling, and remarkable events, as well as the ordinary, daily games we’ve been missing in our lives. We here at The Turf Sports sincerely hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy and being safe through these trying days. We’d also like to take a moment to send out a huge THANK YOU to all of those front-line folks keeping society going – from the medical community to those stocking grocery store shelves, delivering supplies around the country or helping us all fight this virus together in some other essential, invaluable way. You are all heroes.
On another note, we at The Turf have always been of the mind that standing up for what is right and standing up in opposition to hate and violence is necessary. In that same breath, we affirm that Black Lives Matter. To donate to this fight, or for resources on how to help the fight against systemic racism in the United States here is a small portion of the many organizations and groups to consider: Black Visions Collective, LGBTQ Freedom Fund, The Okra Project, Reclaim the Block, Color of Change, Shed Light | Spread Light, and Black Lives Matter.
