Dick Enberg and Vin Scully are both preparing to call their final baseball games of their careers. Scully has of course been calling Dodger games continuously since 1950. Enberg called some Angels and Padres seasons but has dabbled in in all sorts of sports. Both are in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Today while together in LA, they got together to talk about their impending retirement. Fox Sports San Diego was good enough to post their chat on Twitter for those of us that cut cable from their diet. Let’s listen in...
I like how Scully can do two minutes on rocking chairs. Good stuff.
"He's the poet laureate of our profession," Enberg said of Scully. "His longevity is beyond remarkable, and the fact that he continues to display a live fastball and a crackling curve is truly astonishing."
When Enberg was hired by the Padres I started reading his biography. I think I have two chapters left. I should try and finish up before his last game. It’s the least I can do. Enberg will broadcast the last game of the season on October 2nd.
