Legendary Dodgers’ broadcaster Vin Scully’s final season is drawing plenty of tributes, and now we’re seeing one from a different regional sports network. Sunday will likely mark Scully’s final Cubs-Dodgers broadcast (barring a playoff matchup), and CSN Chicago announced Friday they’ll carry the audio feed from Scully’s call on Sportsnet LA for the third inning of that game:
Baseball fans are in for a treat when they tune in to CSN for Sunday’s Cubs-Dodgers broadcast.
CSN will carry the live audio call for one inning of Los Angeles Dodgers legendary broadcaster Vin Scully’s final Cubs-Dodgers game. CSN will have the SportsNet LA audio feed with Scully’s live game call during the third inning.
Scully, in his 67th and final year of calling Dodgers games, has earned multiple awards during his career including the Ford C. Frick Award for broadcasting excellence, a Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award, induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame, along with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Leading up to Sunday’s telecast, fans are encouraged to post their favorite memories of Scully by using #VinOnCSN on Twitter. CSN will also feature a select number of tweets on air during the telecast.
That’s a cool way for the opposing broadcaster to honor Scully. And hey, maybe more people will be able to see him on CSN Chicago than can watch him on Sportsnet LA…
