The Sept. 20 game between the Dodgers and San Francisco Giants has been selected for a national telecast on Sept. 20. The game is not expected to be blacked out in SportsNet LA markets, per an ESPN spokesperson.
Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill told MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM today that Saturday’s perfect game bid, from which he was removed after seven innings because of concerns over a finger blister, is “something that I probably won’t talk about for a long time.”
Enjoy his brief thoughts, then, while you can:
Vin Scully didn’t get to call a no-hitter last night after all. That’s OK.
Hearing Scully call Corey Seager‘s single with two outs in the ninth inning Thursday, the Dodgers’ only hit against Matt Moore in a 4-0 loss, was enough of a reward for anyone who watched the game on SportsNet LA. See for yourself:
Compared to the rest of the league, the Dodgers are relatively invisible in their own market.
Dodgers Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will be featured in an episode of “E:60” this Thursday at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
From the network:
Vin Scully is an American treasure. His voice, one of the most iconic in sports history. From the NFL, to The Masters, to Major League Baseball, Scully has left an indelible mark on some of sports’ greatest moments. Over the span of an incomparable 67-year broadcasting career, he has been the voice of the Dodgers, both in Brooklyn and Los Angeles. Now 88, Scully has decided to call it a career at the conclusion of this baseball season, and granted E:60’s Jeremy Schaap a rare sit-down interview to discuss why it is time, and what it all meant.
