Vin Scully is a faithful Catholic, a loyal Dodger and a fan favorite. His voice is sweet, welcoming and healing. His stories are folksy, historical and enjoyable for shut-ins, hospital patients and baseball fanatics.
I grew up listening to Scully. I miss a quiet Dodger Stadium, the facts of Ross Porter, the stories by Jim Murray, the fun Laker games by Chic Hern and the wisdom of John Wooden. I also miss Govenor Pete Wilson, safe neighborhoods in the San Fernando Valley and the space industry in Downey.
Scully is a thin link to a golden past.
