Both Vin Scully and the Dodgers have a long history dating back to Brooklyn. Along the way some of the game’s most memorable people put on the Dodger Blue. Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax, Tommy Lasorda, Steve Garvey, Kirk Gibson and Fernando Valenzuela are just a few that come to mind. There are many more greats to be sure. But Vin Scully saw them all during his 67 years as a Dodgers radio and TV announcer. Let’s remember some of them here! Let’s play Wiki-Pete-ia! Good luck!
