Vin Scully, the legendary voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers, will drop the mic for the final time this weekend, Sunday, Oct. 2.
Scully’s multi-generational impact amongst sports fans and media members alike can’t be overstated.
He has significantly influenced countless ESPN commentators, including baseball and college basketball play-by-play voice Dave O’Brien.
In the tribute video above, O’Brien, who also serves as the Boston Red Sox play-by-play voice for NESN, discusses Scully’s immeasurable talent, his favorite memories and calls, and even does a few impersonations of the legend.
O’Brien is scheduled to call the National League Wild Card Game on ESPN Radio, Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 8 p.m. ET.
