Vin Scully is Sports Illustrated’s latest cover boy.

Vin Scully

It took him 88 years, but Vin Scully finally made the cover of Sports Illustrated.

SI senior writer Tom Verducci profiles the Dodgers’ Hall of Fame broadcaster for this week’s issue of the magazine. Tim O’Brien did the cover art. You can read the story here.

SI also uploaded highlights of some of Scully’s favorite calls to its website; here are some of his calls from the 1955 World Series, and a video of Scully remembering Jackie Robinson.

(Also, note that the Rampaging Cubs are the last great American sports story. I’m moving to Canada. Nothing great for me to write here anymore.)
