From the Associated Press
The one constant in the longtime rivalry between the Dodgers and Giants has been Vin Scully, who on Sunday will mark the 60th anniversary of his first day in the Dodgers’ broadcast booth with Red Barber and Connie Desmond.
“I feel only overwhelming gratitude,” Scully told the Associated Press. “You feel blessed that you’ve lived that long, that you’ve been allowed to do what you love to do for that long, and that my health has held up all those years.
“It’s humbling to think that you’ve been that fortunate and that God has blessed you with that time. That first team, the so-called ‘Boys of Summer,’ that was my graduating class. I mean, look at the team then. I had Don Newcombe, Gil Hodges, Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, Billy Cox, Roy Campanella, Duke Snider, Carl Furillo and Carl Erskine. That was such an amazing collection of players, so I guess that was the team that made the most impression on me.”
