There are Vin Scully Awards in Los Angeles and New York City. Cooperstown should follow suit, writes colleague Tom Hoffarth.
SiriusXM will air a two-hour tribute special dedicated to the extraordinary broadcasting career of Vin Scully this Monday at 2 p.m., the network announced.
Scully’s last game behind the mic is Sunday in San Francisco.
Here are a few details about the program from a SiriusXM press release:
1. Ross Stripling threw from the stretch with the bases empty today. He said he didn’t warm up out of the windup in the bullpen before coming in. The right-hander gave up two hits in three innings (one was a double that led to the winning run) and said he might just roll with it now that he’s reliving full-time.
2. Josh Reddick famously wore a “don’t bunt” T-shirt recently while visiting with Vin Scully. So why did he bunt in the ninth inning? “They’re giving you a free hit with the shift,” he said. The Padres had abandoned third base with the left-handed hitting Reddick at the plate.
