Sintesi dell'editore

Since 1950, the instantly recognizable voice of Vin Scully has invited listeners to “pull up a chair” for his peerless play-by-play sports reporting. Recruited and mentored by the legendary Red Barber, Scully has narrated NBC’s Game of the Week, 12 All-Star Games, 18 no-hitters, and 25 World Series, describing players from Duke Snider to Orel Hershiser to Manny Ramirez, with hundreds in between. Scully has made every sportscasting Hall of Fame, received an Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and been named Sportscaster of the 20th Century by the American Sportscasters Association. This long overdue biography of Vin Scully is written by Curt Smith, called “the voice of authority on baseball broadcasting” (USA Today).

Couldn’t follow

I couldn’t tell if it was the story or the narrator but i couldn’t follow along. It seemed to jump from thought to thought without proper transition. It couldn’t keep my attention like other biographies. I suppose an autobiography by Vin Scully, narrated by him, would be the only way to do him justice.

B-Grade Story on Grade-A Broadcaster and American

Great detail, but a little disappointing after the Dodgers' move to LA. Mr. Scully is a True Legend, and more than deserving of the accolades he has earned.
