Today in Sports History: November 29

By Jonah Sharf

On November 29, 1927, legendary sportscaster Vin Scully was born. Scully began his career in 1950 calling games for the Brooklyn Dodgers, and remained with the team through everything—including a move to Los Angeles—until 2016. He had an incredible 67-season run with the Dodgers, and has been earned many awards and honors, including the Commissioner’s Historic Achievement Award, the only broadcaster to earn the award. Scully also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and earned the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016. Scully is widely considered to be the greatest baseball broadcaster of all time, if not all sports.
