Vin Scully featured in ESPN’s “E:60” Thursday episode. (Video)

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.
