Baseball lost a giant this week with the passing of announcer Vin Scully at the age of 94. Vin was so much more than just a great announcer – he was a storyteller and your friend while you watched games on TV. He was also the TV voice of the 1984 World Series for our beloved Tigers (how blessed were we to have Vin Scully AND Ernie Harwell on the same series?)

And Vin’s connection to Kirk Gibson would continue four years later in Los Angeles

Vin Scully was on the call for the 49ers/Cowboys NFC title game (Dwight Clark and the catch)

Hank Aaron breaking Babe Ruth’s record? That was Vin Scully
