Born in The Bronx, New York, Vin Scully attended Fordham University, where he began working as a broadcaster for college games. His college years were busy, as he co-founded a radio station, served as a broadcaster for multiple sports, sang with a quartet, edited his class yearbook, and played on the baseball team. He received only one job offer after college, but that led to a job broadcasting college football games for CBS Radio. He became part of the Brooklyn Dodgers coverage team in 1950, and remained with the Dodgers even after they moved to California. His play-by-play announcements were so popular, that fans would bring radios to the stadium to listen to his commentary, while watching the game live. He also continued to call football games, and occasionally tennis and golf, for CBS. In the early 80s, he shifted to covering baseball for NBC. He covered baseball for that network until the late 80s, when they cut their baseball coverage. Vin would go on to call baseball games for the Dodgers, including several World Series Games, for more than six decades. He retired at the end of the 2016 season.
