Default Ejections and Vin Scully

There is nothing special about the ejections of Andre Ethier and Don Mattingly in this video. I just think it is funny how Vin Scully describes the action.

I like the way Vin Scully describes the action. He tells us what is happening without taking sides. Some other analists would try to tell us that their hitter has a great eye, and will show the replay 10 times, and argue that the pitch was actually 1/10 inch off the plate.

I totall agree with you Vin Scully is the most colorful analist of the game in my book. He doesn't take sides just explains the situation and moves on. I grew up with listening to him as a young boy and he is the best. If you listen to him also on Radio you know where the ball is hit and its just great to listen to Vinny at any time just talking baseball and History lesson of the game.

"Oh! Infact there is a difference of opinion of how good the pitch was" Could it be put any classier? Simple, to the point with a real nice dry wit. Commentary like this is a rarrity anymore.

I don't even like (or dislike) the Dodgers, but half the reason I got the MLB Extra Innings package was to hear him call games.

Very nice.

I totally agree that is a darn good reason to get that package. I may have to consider that myself just to listen to Vin Scully is well worth the price.

I totally agree. The best baseball announcer that i have heard in a long time since Jack Buck, Dizzy Dean and Pee Wee Reese, Joe G and we can't forget Harry C. Singing take me out to the ball game and the seventh inning stretch. Public address announcer with a voice of gold Bob Sheppard.

Having grown up in Windsor and along Lake Huron, I had the distinct pleasure of watching my Tigers games be called by Ernie Harwell, another fine broadcaster (in my opinion) like Scully who is from another time where broadcasting was an art form.
