Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully has proved time and time again over his Hall of Fame career that he brings a lot to baseball broadcasts. He showed Monday night that a sense of humor is one of those many things.
Scully was calling the Dodgers’ game versus the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night when Adrian Gonzalez fouled off a pitch. The foul ball took a quick bounce off the dirt near the plate and struck home plate umpire Manny Gonzalez in a place where no man wants to be hit with a baseball.
The umpire appeared to be fine (relatively speaking, of course), which opened the door for Scully to crack a joke at Gonzalez’s expense.[tweet https://twitter.com/Lana/status/496519549337223168 align=’center’]
Scully wasn’t done there, though.[tweet https://twitter.com/Lana/status/496526432148144128 align=’center’]
Luckily for everyone, we’ll have the pleasure of listening to Scully for at least one more year, as he recently announced he’ll be returning for the 2015 season — his 66th with the Dodgers.
