"We go back 56 years together, I’ve always had tremendous respect & admiration for him as a broadcaster & as a human being. 
I’d crawl across hot coals to honor him—-
no reason in the world to compare Jaime to anybody else, first of all in this town he’s doing it Spanish, and I’m doing it in English—- He stands alone, he’s Jaime Jarrin, he’s not compared to anyone else.” ~ Vin Scully

“When the sun sets at Dodger Stadium, I am impressed first of all with the mountains because, at this time of year, they are fully defined. It makes me think of some of the great artists who did Western paintings — Frederic Remington, Charles Russell, Frank McCarthy, to name a few — because they must have been inspired by that.

And then the cloud formations. At sunset, they turn pink. And as it continues, the closer you are to sunset, the clouds are still kind of gold. Farther away in center field and right field, you’re away from the sunset and the clouds are turning purple. So you think of an artist’s palette with various colors, and it just takes your breath away.

Down on the field, a ballgame is just beginning. But the sunset becomes a major distraction because it’s so overwhelming it’s hard to take your eyes off it. And then the palm trees — there’s a group of palm trees on the hill behind left field — they are defined against the sky, and they are turning colors with the sunset. You can’t see that anywhere else in a ballpark.” ~ Vin Scully August 2003

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)

.@clariceann__27 Certainly the 42-8 stretch was bordering on the miraculous. That was really amazing. #AskVin

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)

.@TBrownYahoo As a small boy we never had a Christmas tree. I’d go to bed and there would be no sign of Christmas in the apartment. #AskVin

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)

.@TBrownYahoo When I was asleep my dad would go to the tree lot & bring a little tree to the apartment and he & my mother would decorate it.

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)

.@TBrownYahoo I would wake up and rush into the living room and there would be a Christmas tree fully decorated. #AskVin

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)

.@LBthrowbackDUDE I did work on a movie, “For Love of the Game.” Perhaps because I was so involved in it. #AskVin

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)

They built a press box in the studio and they showed the game on a huge screen. I broadcast what I saw. There was no script. #AskVin

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)

.@ErnieMontano It was at the Polo Grounds. Dodgers and the Giants. I would say it was 1939. In the bleachers and cost 55 cents. #AskVin

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)

I started calling games in my head when I was playing stickball with the boys. Then would holler a little play-by-play from my apartment.

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)

I lived in Ronald Reagan’s neighborhood and went to the White House for his 1st inauguration with my wife.That was really one in a million.

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers)
