"Time right here on ESPN Radio. It is my honor to welcome on the shell. Pennzoil Performance Line, the one and only Vin Scully to ESPN Radio Vin. Thank you so much for taking this time. They hope you're feeling well today, Mike. I feel fine. Thank you for asking, And I trust you are the same. I am. Thank you today, four years to the day since Vince Scully broadcast his last Dodger game, and it is really such a treat for me. I can't tell you the reaction that I'm getting from people. When I told them you were going to be with me so Let's go through as much as we can. In the time that we have, and I'd like to start at the very beginning. I mentioned that you began your broadcasting career in 1950. In Brooklyn. What are yours? You look back. And now your fondest recollections of those earliest days for you in Brooklyn. Well, we had a relationship in the broadcast booth. That I don't believe we'll ever see again. In essence, Red Barber was the father Kani. Desmond was the older brother. And I was the kid brother and thank goodness both Red and Connie made sure that I would get through it without making too many gaps or Miss steaks and once in a while. Because he really cared that I would succeed. Red Barber would treat me like a father and son relationship so that he would correct me after the game, not on the air. I'll always remember. Doing my first season I mentioned that Willie Mae is was the finest for greatest ballplayer I ever saw. When the broadcast ended Red, said Young Scully. He said that you have not been around long enough. Tell us the greatest ballplayer you ever saw. And immediately I was chasing and realized he was correct. And then Connie being the older brother. And he would say all Come on. You're fine. You're doing great, You know, So it was a remarkable atmosphere when I don't think you'll ever see or hear that again. Extraordinary story and your very first game, Jackie Robinson was hitting cleanup. Ben in light of the climate in this country right now, he seems especially relevant. Maybe as much So as practically ever. When you think of him today of Jackie Robinson. What do you think of? Well, I think of an outstanding ballplayer. I can see that big smile and laugh. I remember we I skated, or at least he was going to try up in Grossinger's in New York. That's a famous resort and the interesting Little bit of a story. We were both sent up there to talk to the patronage and grossing is about baseball. It was a nice idea to promote fans and Anyway to start interest, and I arrived being a New Yorker kids raised in ice skating in the winter. I carried my skates. Jackie and his wife, Rachel arrived. Rachel was about seven months pregnant. And Jack said, Oh, you're going to go skating and I said, Yeah, he's well, I'll go with you. I said, Whoa, fine. So Jackie and I went into the dressing room. Meanwhile, Rachel at seven months pregnant, went with the lady to get her skates and I was scared to death about her anyway. Jackie and I are sitting alongside of each other. Putting on our escape. Checking out of the blue Suddenly, when we go out there, I'll race you. And I was shocked and I looked at Jackie and I said, Jack, you're from Southern California Football Star Baseball star. Great athlete. I never knew you skated. And he said, I've never been on skates in my life. I said, Well, there's no way that you could beat me. And he said no, but that's how I learn that competitive spirit inside that man was truly remarkable. And we were good friends. Interesting for me. My first game. The broadcast was in Philadelphia. The Dodges open that year, and during spring training, I got to know Don Newcombe Very well. God rested so And Luke was gonna pitch that game on. I would say to him, Come on down, really be ready for my debut. I want you to strike out everybody. And of course, with that big belly laugh, he'd laugh. And so before the game Red assigned me will say the fourth inning and I said Great, and then I was thinking I'm gonna broadcast on new comes first game. What a treat. This is Newcomers knocked out of the game before we got to Miami. So we dragged about that ever since. I mean, that was a running gag with new command myself. Screening and from our family at ESPN radio to yours, wishing you were very safe, healthy and happy Holiday season. Wanna make sure that you know that starting Tuesday, January 5th we are moving will be coming your way every morning, starting 10.

"Good Morning, everybody. Well, we've made it to the end of the 60 game season, and I congratulate baseball for doing it. We've got the pennant race going on. Yesterday, the Giants lose to the Padres ahs. The Brewers win yesterday and Ah as red Barber said in 1947, all hell is ready to break loose here. On this last day of the season, when everybody will be playing 12 05 Pacific and we've got Giants and Padres coming up. We've got a whole bunch of scenarios that could happen. For the thing to remember. Giants have tto win today. If they win today. A lot of good things can happen. If they lose today they are out. No questions asked, and they lost last night 6 to 2. To the Padres, and today, they put Drew Smyly on the hill. He's been outstanding. The left hand there has been outstanding and the Padres who've really been a pain in the neck. They won two of three of this. Siri's Winnie yesterday 6 to 2 and splitting the doubleheader on Friday night. We'll throw Adrian Mornay hone M O R. E J. O N, a young Cuban pitcher, only 21 years old. Two and two with a 46 earned run average giants of cinnamon relief and then a whole host of other pictures. I'm sure behind the Padres a very, very interesting day of baseball coming up. I'm glad to bring it to you with my good partner. Good friend. Bill Lasky. Bill. Good morning. How are you? Good morning, Marty. How are you doing the last day of the 2020 MLB baseball season, and it's going to be exciting from the first pitch at 12 05 that everybody plays. I think that's so cool that they put that in where everybody plays at the same time the last day. And you can't put the pressure on each other. You have to go out and continue to play and, you know, going to last night's game. Just a real quick thought here that I just thought they play flat yesterday. There just wasn't any excitement. There wasn't anything. A momentum boost at all. And and I tell you watching Ah Mauricio do Bond get thrown out of third base. I scratch my head on that one. I just didn't understand where he was going. Why he was going because that was really the first chance. They had a little moment. Um, And that was in the fifth inning when they had 1st and 2nd and only one out, and it just kind of threw him under the bus there. They couldn't get anything going and they got something the thinning, but they just didn't get enough Well, not grinding out those at bats. And look, this is a team that has lived on their offense, tremendous with runners in scoring position, playing great at home. And it just didn't happen last night, and Zach Davies was was good, but he was gone there in that bullpen, and when you're in that bullpen for six innings there, so you figure you're going to have some chances, but Mauricio, Devon is is a very aggressive young player and fans if you didn't see it last night with Bill was alluding to Giants at 1st and 2nd and strips key coming up and a real chance to to get back into the game. And there was one out at the time is already in scoring position, and they're in the shift for us. Stransky and Machado was sort of, you know, playing halfway to shortstop. And Ah Duvan probably figured in his own mind. That was his own play. No one called it. Heinemann was on first, you didn't go anywhere. Uh, Devon took off for third, figuring he could beat Machado to the bag and no one threw a just a pita third base. Machado almost tagged them, but Divine. It slid past the bag, and then he was tagged out for the second out. And then you Stransky was put out to end the inning. And that was it until the Giants put two on the board in the eighth inning, and they couldn't finish it off. To get it to 3 to 2. But Bill you've been around the game a long time. What does Gabe Kapler do today? Does he need a team meeting? Toe? Wake everybody up last night. He wasn't talking about good at bats and you know a lot of the the manager speak that he's been doing the whole year, he said. I'm frustrated. Well, you're now the manager, pal. And this this is the biggest game of the year for you. How do you get your team? Ready. So, Bill? What does he do today to get this team ready? Well, we don't know if he's had meetings before certain games or certain Siri's. We don't know what happens in that locker room because, of course, all the reporters seven today and be able to go in there and Last night in a postgame show, he says, I have to cool down. I have to calm down to see if I want to do AH team meeting if I want to talk to specific players. But then do bond comes out and says, Hey, we all know what we have to do tomorrow. We have to win, so we have to come together tomorrow somehow some way and win and put the pressure on the Brewers. And that's literally what has to happen. ST Louis in Milwaukee, playing 12 o'clock game also, and I just think Gabe Kapler isn't going to do that. I think he understands his veterans will take the lead here and they all understand they have to have a good game today. To progress into the three game series against the Dodgers of this starts on Wednesday. Yep, Yep, it's belt. It's Crawford. Ah, you know, it's associates. Longoria, who boy He's had a rough Siri's landlord has come up a lot of those. With times, Teo to do some damage. Flores these guys have been around I You know, it's is an experience of thinking. Well, I've got a rant, rave, er, you know, do something or do that you not to do anything. See, that's what you have 13 coaches for and you have to remain calm. Baseball is a game to remain comments, not football, where you have to fire people up in and hit people That's not baseball. The time to have a tantrum is probably after the game when you come in here ever Manager have a tantrum after the game. Oh, hell, yeah, You blew up the spread throwing stuff around screaming at people. Oh, yeah, there would have had a few of them in the minor leagues as well as a big league General Frank Robinson was a tiring when he will ask me. Kit Come in, screaming at people and you know, And then you got Danny Ozark who was so mellow It didn't even know if he was alive. Sometimes it walked into the clubhouse and you're like, Hey, Danny. Hey. Yeah, but that's not the man he was. He was great with the next day, Bill the next day you came in and never know it was, you know, almost screaming the next day..

We got a chance to speak to Dodger Hall of Famer Vin Scully yesterday after the show. Hunt auctions is honoring the great Vin Scully. They're going to have an auction and it's going to take place coming up in September, and you're gonna you're gonna be able to bid on some items here. His World Series ring from 1988. You're also going to be able to bid on the score book in his last game that he did another World Series ring here. President Reagan's signed baseball Devyn. Scully's also in there, and I started out the conversation with Vince Scali by asking him how his summer Wass My summer has been the Haydn seek. The temperatures out here have been unusually high were our backyard temperature one day. 117. However, my wife and I spend most of our lives now at home so I could just sum up the summer and two words at home. You miss watching games or calling games. You know, I don't miss calling them at all. And I must say, I kind of demand something from the game. I'm watching if it's very slowly played game. If it's just a long game, I might just turn it off and go to bed way. Gotta be reasonable here, Lee, So I like to watch him for a while. And right now it's for instance, today or this will be on the air tomorrow Friday. But today while we're taping this We have football coming on tonight. We have the Dodgers playing tonight. We have a basketball game tonight. So we spend our time my wife and I bouncing from one sport to another. And on the weekend we really look forward to watching golf. If you ever called a game without fans. No, never may be reasonably small crowds going backto Brooklyn where Ah, you could hear the voices of the individual fans. I remember. I had just started with Red Barber and Connie Desmond and I was really a kid, and there was a famous woman fan. Her name was Hilda Chester, and she had a cow bell, and she worked away all over the ballpark Shoe was extremely colorful on this particular day with a very small crowd. I heard her heavy voice say then, Scully. I love you and the crowd. Whatever that wass kind of laughed and I lowered my head. And she said, Look at me when I'm talking to you how small across it Wass one day and that, But how important is that crowd for you? Especially when you're doing a game on the radio. Oh, I loved it. I told the story many times When I grew up about eight years old. We had a big four legged radio and I would crawl underneath it. With some saltine crackers and a glass of milk and I would listen to a college football game. And let's just say it was Alabama, Tennessee. I had no idea who was playing or anything but I learned to love the roar of the crowd, and if I have a trademark or had it would be called a play that's quickly and accurately as I could, and then shut up. And listen to the crowd, and for a few seconds it was eight years old again and someone during one of the World Series games somebody hit a home run. And I called the home run and as networks are want to do, they showed the home run again and I just shot up and the columnist road. Perhaps then Scully made his greatest contribution by saying nothing. I took that to heart. I didn't think of it as criticism. I thought of is yes, You're right. The best thing I can do in the crowd roars is shut up. There's nothing about it, but to have that self discipline because it feels like announcers want to over call a game. And here you are. Having almost a seatbelt on to say plays over quiet, let the crowd or on beyond settle in, and it almost feels like it would draw me closer. Through the game while I'm listening because I almost lean in Mohr, because you're not saying anything. Yeah, I think again it goes all the way back to my love of the roar of the crowd. Probably. Ah, Couple of the longest pauses. While I had enjoyment of listening to the crowd, one would certainly the Kirk Gibson's oil Siri's homerun, and another one was Henry Aaron's record breaking on run. I mean, what the heck can you say? One should call the home run. Except sit back and really luxuriated listening to this crowd. Just be ecstatic. I loved it, but you were also in the call for the catch with Joe Montana and Dwight Clark. Did you react the same way in a football moment as you would in a baseball moment? Oh, sure. I mean, if I remember there was less than a minute to go and Montana throws to Clark and the catch is made and the Niners.

Behind home plate, the others on the third base side near the Reds dugout, Cincinnati won the first game 5 to 2. They'd fall in the nightcap 6 to 1 and later become New York's modern day WNBC. Yeah, it is what it was. I see you considering that in 1937. There was probably five televisions, right? They probably got about a 99 share Go. So what year did A J has come on the air? Because I know like W. W. J celebrating 100 this time. We're coming up. I'm really going down there. So you're talking. This was relatively this was relatively what 20 years after Ah TV or radio came on the air that they fucked that they had the first baseball game on TV. That's pretty impressive, actually. Well, I thought both of you there's a couple other things were Commemorating today. Today's national Dog Day, and Scott has been a dog converted converted dog lover. I know that you didn't hate dogs, but no, I didn't. I just wasn't. I mean, we had two basset hounds growing up my whole life and I have terrible allergies.

They do have that kind of mask texture. If you must lie in the gutter soaked in, right, Ah, so one of the things I was looking at this. The toid paper actually was created in the sixth century in China. It's somewhere in the six century and then let's say we had in 1964 Sharman produced perfumed one play. Ah, toilet tissue. And north white. Good Northern tissue invented splitter Free toilet paper in 1935, You're free.

"And the Brooklyn dodgers radio and television booths and you had an opportunity then in one thousand nine hundred eighty three to do the world series and at that time you were only twenty five years old and you became the youngest man to broadcast a world series game. I have talked Duke Snider and others about the ebbets field and about the Brooklyn community. Tell me a little bit about your view of it about the stadium itself because you had the polo grounds. You had the Yankees in Yankee Stadium and then you had the bombs of course over at ebbets field. Well divall in order to explain why. I had the opportunity at that tender age in nineteen fifty. Three Red Barber was the senior announcer. In fact I mean he was the legendary wreck Barbara and well however he felt that after all the years of doing the world series he felt he should get more money In those days we would see two hundred dollars a game. That's all and red. Felt that I had done so many of them that he wanted more money. And the people behind the broadcast it happened to be the Gillette safe to raise a company and they they did not agree with red so he was not gonNa do it county desmond. Who is the number two announcer and a marvelous announce it could easily have been a number one Founding had had problems with Gillette in the past so they were going to overlook him and my phone rang and all of a sudden. I'm offered the world series in nineteen fifty three was an overwhelming offer. But I did not want to get caught in the Labor negotiations and cutting the legs out from red and or counties consideration so I I called red I explained and he said then I want you to accept it. You have my blessing has nothing to do with you. They are not going to do what I want. And so you should take it then. I got the blessing from Connie and then I called back to Gillette and said I'll be honored to do the world series and I was GonNa work with a favorite of mine. A Wonderful Guy Mel Allen. Who is the voice of the Yankees but they of game one of the world series and I had only done ice boy inkling of innings on television during the year and I can remember. It was five minutes ago. I had a big Irish breakfast My mother always believed that record was the most important meal of the day and I had this big meal. Mccain's all in the daytime and those days and I finished the meal and excuse myself went up stairs to get dressed and immediately everything up. It was nerve overwhelming. May however when I got the Yankee Stadium all of a sudden that sounds and the smells and being with now calm me down a great deal and I was able to get through it now in epic. Feel the.

I know you decided you wanted to become a sports announcer when you became fascinated with the football broadcasts on radio. What were the early broadcast sports broadcast that you heard Ron? We had a four legged radio and I was able to crawl underneath it with a pillow and let the speaker directly over my face and the crowd noise from A big time football game would come out of that speaker like water out of shower ahead and it would just drench me and I would respond with goosebumps and I would think oh my gosh. Isn't this exciting now here? I am in an apartment. The floor walk up apartment in Washington heights and I might be listening to Tennessee. Alabama game having no knowledge of anyone playing but the roar of the crowd was what really got to neat and later when I was eight years old because of the influence of the crowd I wrote a composition for the good nuns that I would like to be a sports announcer. Well this was pretty outside of the box. The boys in grammar school or wanted to be policemen and firemen and doctors and lawyers and athletes and the girls wanted to be nurses and mommies and ballet dancers etc. And here's this little redhead kid saying I WANNA be a sports announcer so I really was gifted in the sense that I knew what I wanted at such a very young age.

He is the only football announcer heard of not only talk about the secondary but he would also talk about the tertiary and then boxing he would describe the sanguine flow of somebody's bloody nose. I mean he was really mild and then of course the electricity. I've never played her voice as electric as a man named Bill. Stern who was was a football announcer and just a remarkable radio man. Then there was a barber for whom I was fortunate enough to learn and grow up under. He was like an extra father to me so they would just a couple but I I just lived in new. The voices of all of them after a while. A large part of your early life was Fordham University. You not only went there van but you also played Centerfield for the Rams Baseball team and you call broadcast baseball football and basketball teams as well but you helped found the radio station which was W. F. UV. Tell me about that station. Station is a true station. It is not a campus station which is only heard on campus. This is an FM station. That is heard throughout the New York Connecticut New Jersey area and I just happened to be in school at the time when they put the station on the air so I was one of several fellows who worked and I was delighted to have a chance to beyond the air. Originally I lent into the navy briefly thinking that I would perhaps be a writer but I always long for the roar of the crowd and I thought well maybe -ality a sports writer and I would still hear the roar of the crowd but I also realized as I got older what I really wanted to do was to speak for a living and who is. Wfan V. Just waiting for me so right my pieces and do my nieces and it was a remarkable training ground for me. It also gave me the opportunity and the equipment to come up with a large desk and Acetate disc of the various things that I did a little football basketball a little. This little hat eventually sat out to the big stations and got my first job off campus when I graduated with the WTO am and FM. Which is a fifty thousand Watt Station in Washington? Dc and. I was hired there as a summer. Replacement announcer as each member of the staff went on vacation. I assumed all his doozy's and of course that gave me a little rounded experience as well and then they asked me when I had gone through the entire staff and I was leaving probably the first week of December right around that time but they guaranteed me a permanent job in February of the next year because one of the staff members was leaving. Well while I was there they called me and said we have an emergency. Red Barber needs a football announcer etc. And I'm trying to speed up. The story did a football game. The next thing I know I did another one Harvard Yale and the next thing I knew Ernie Harwell left Brooklyn and red. Barber offered me the job as a third announcer so at all went back really from. Wf You the WTO and eventually to Brooklyn. Now I understand that. What impressed Red Barber about you was the coverage of that football game from Fenway Park in Boston and in the story goes I'll let you pick it up that you had to do that. Game from the roof of the stadium. Well what happened was Here.

"Smith is join us on sports byline and I recommend this book highly. It's called pull up a chair. The VIN scully story. Let's PICK UP THE STORY AT FORDHAM. Of course but when he got his break it was with Red Barber. Tell the story that you tell them the book about the of the call that his mother got it home in one thousand nine hundred forty nine scully. In nineteen forty died. He was He was twenty years old. Twenty two actually not quite twenty two and he was interning the WTO radio Washington. Red Bottle is the voice of the Brooklyn dodgers but also ron this is key the sports director of CBS radio saw Barbara interviews the intern Vin scully and a couple of weeks later he needs a college football broadcaster to do a Boston University and Maryland from Fenway Park so he calls WTO p references and then he calls scully home and he gets his mother red haired and excitable then Austin said so that evening Mama these men coming to the door she says and I'll paraphrase what a wonderful thing. How exciting today was this? Great man. What what magnificence? He took the time to Cau- He wants you to call them and then says who wasn't mom. Mom Says Red Skelton. Cbs's iconic comic. Of course they knew it was not scallop. The last laugh was not on him next day. He called Red Barber. Barbara gave him. That assignment then goes to Boston. He's expecting a booth no booth fact. He had to broadcast from the roof. And Fenway Park and freezing weather carrying cable on the roof down the first baseline. Scali never complained he liked Barbara was STOIC. And this impressed Barbara as much as the as the quality of Vince performance. So he calls him and he says then. Next week you'll have a booth Harvard Yale Again. So impressive that that off season Ernie Harwell left the Brooklyn dodgers for the New York giants. And WHO DID BARBARA TAP to replace him? Vin scully barely twenty two to this day. Incidentally how well call that making room for scully his quote unquote greatest contribution to the game? The other thing to Kurt that I think is interesting is the way you know with the dodgers that whole relationship of Vin scully and the dodgers together and it was something that was very comfortable. I mean a guy that comes out of the Bronx you would think would be a Yankee Fan and everything but I really felt that. The dodgers and Vin scully were hand in Glove. Act or I think that's true of the irony. Is that scully? His parents did not own a car. He had never been to ebbets field until the first day that he arrived a call a gay he'd been at the Polo Grounds Greg Frequency in Yankee Stadium but not Brooklyn USA. I agree with you. Use the term special the relationship between Barbara and scholar. It was it was almost familial. It certainly was parental. And I think that that van really looked upon Barbara as he's often said see most profound influence save his mother and his life. Babur reciprocated he said the scully was the was the son. I never had so. You're talking about a surrogate that and the surrogate dad is so often the case practice. Tough love half a century rod before that term arose. He would lecture scully off and on the air he would say things like I will try very poorly Barbara Accent. Now young scully. Nobody cares what you think as read said then didn't like it. He said the audience loved it but he taught him not to socialize players. Because you would lose objectivity. He taught him to be painstaking in terms of diligence. Be Accurate never make a mistake? Get to the BALLPARK HOURS. Before the game he did. He taught him never to regard. The dodgers is extended member of the family. Beiber likes Golly Ron uses and used the exact same phrase each said we have never ever used the term. We so when you hear scully today on. Xm satellite or indeed From Los Angeles. When you hear him you are really hearing barber. Except that you're hearing more. You're hearing the miracle of Vin scully. Having transcended his mentor. I think it's safe to say that Vince. Gully has probably been associated with some of the greatest moments probably more of the greatest moments in baseball than any other broadcaster and certainly he seen some significant events. And I WANNA take you back to Brooklyn with Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier and I thought that one of the quotes was very very interesting. Yeah he wants said the Jackie was probably one of the few people in this world who excelled when he was angry about that event. Yeah most places when they get angry most humans Lewis Perspective and lose effectiveness. We become less than we are. Jackie Robinson became more. As scully said this galvanized him activated him To repay not with violence because branch rookie had swore him not to be violent. But rather through sheer excellent Scalia said that Asa Robinson got hit by a pitch or was even thrown inside. He would automatically. How do you get even? He'd Steal Second Base third base steel home plate and he said that extraordinary self-discipline much like a scully and and and not responding to violent but in really getting retribution by by excelling and beating the other team. You said you were making the greatest mistake of your life. If you made Robinson Mad. How did he react to the moving of the team to the west coast because he was a New Yorker everyone through? How would you react not well and he did not either Not In an open but privately after all everything he loved was there. He was from New York He was reaching and pleasing his public in nineteen fifty five. He had done the last four. And a half innings. Abc Television Brooklyn's first as it turned out sadly so we'll title and scully on the last Out which is a ground ball from reese to go hodges said simply ladies and gentlemen the Brooklyn Dodgers in the champions of the world then hushed all winter people would ask. How did you remain so calm? Scully said if I had said another word I would have broken down and cried. He didn't WanNa go fifty seven woody as he said he was like. The wife has whose husband had been transferred. She doesn't want to go but she goes. And yet the irony Ron. Is You know many of your listeners. To the dodgers Westward Hull Leaving Brooklyn for Los Angeles Nineteen fifty seven. The early part of fifty eight wasn't in fact. The most fortuitous turn of Events. That could possibly have happened. Because scully became an institution in Los Angeles became the embodiment of the town. Then and now to an extent that he never could have in the city of New York. Let's talk also before he leaves New York about the nineteen fifty-six world series in the perfect game because he was right there with his broadcasting partner Mel Allen and they saw perfection they sure did died last October. Eight nineteen fifty-six First Perfect game in baseball since the early twenties off first and only a perfect game in world series to this day and here he is with Mel Allen. The legendary marquee celebrity voice the most fame broadcaster in the country and scully's kid still living with his parents and he does the last four and a half innings and of course the extraordinary pressure each man each man out Twenty seven the end In a row retired by Larson and scholarly Called the final out and then he began to leave the booth. He was dazed if he would like everyone. And Alan says van. Aren't you going to give the final score? And then he does of course but as van says and I recall this in the In the book pull up a Cherry said that his suit felt like a greenhouse he was wilted soaked through and through any kind of idea. About what the West Coast was going to be like no nor did the west coast have any idea what he was to be like. You know. Interestingly Author o'malley the dodger owner was pressured by people in Los Angeles not hire him to hire to local people but o'malley who also had interesting that sort of father son relationship with with Sculley had implicit faith in him and justifiably so he goes to the West Coast. And here. You have Los Angeles satellite now. Totally sprawled out. No focal point. No.
