Listen to legendary Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully's classic call of Sandy
Koufax's perfect game

In the pantheon of beloved sports broadcasters, Vin Scully stands alone.

The legendary voice of the Dodgers, who died Tuesday at 94, helped generations
of fans fall in love with baseball, from his first season
with the *****Brooklyn***** Dodgers in 1950 to his final call in
Los Angeles in 2016.

Scully was not Jewish. But over the course of a 67-year broadcasting career
with the Dodgers, one that spanned from Jackie Robinson to current Dodger great
Clayton Kershaw, the Hall of Famer covered the entire career of Jewish
superstar pitcher Sandy Koufax.

Koufax played for the Dodgers first in Brooklyn and then Los Angles, from
1955-1966, putting together a breathtaking resume that included four World
Series championships, three Cy Young Award wins for the game's best pitcher and
four no-hitters.

Through Koufax's dominant highs and his injury-induced lows, Scully was behind
the microphone, narrating it all for fans on both coasts.

Knowledge may be power, but communications is the key
