Remembering Scully’s Greatest Calls


-David S.-

Vin Scully has decided that 2016 will be his last year calling games which would make it his 67th year as the voice of the Dodger’s.  As great as it is that we will be able to hear the legendary voice for one more year, it’s a sad moment for baseball when he leaves.  In honor of Scully, here are some of the greatest calls in his career.  My personal favorite is when  Rick Monday saved the American flag.

Here’s a link to MLB Network’s top calls: http://m.mlb.com/video/v25509721/network-reveals-vin-scullys-top-calls

Rick Monday Saves the American Flag


-David S.-

On April 26, 1975, two protesters rushed onto the field with an American flag during a Dodgers – Cubs game.  The two protesters stopped in center field and tried to light the flag on fire, which was soaked in lighter fluid.  The right fielder for the Chicago Cubs, Rick Monday, saw this happening.  He made a heroic move to charge toward the men. Luckily, the first match was blown out by the wind.  This gave Rick time to courageously save the American flag from being burned as a second match was being lit.  Even though this didn’t happen on the Fourth of July, this goes down as one of, if not, the most patriotic acts in sports history.  Well done Rick, well done. . .  Way to make America proud!

Way to make America proud Rick!
