It could be said that Vin Scully is a reliable man who can be counted on by all of his co-workers, peers, and fans; but saying something doesn't mean it is true. In Scully's case It can also be seen here when explained by Enders. "Known as the "Voice of the Dodgers," Vin Scully is one of the top sportscasters in American history. In addition to his more than sixty years as a play-by-play announcer for the Brooklyn and then Los Angeles Dodgers," (ENDERS). It didn't matter how miserable your day was going or what was happening in the world you knew you could always turn on the radio or TV and listen to sweet music of the crowd and the ever reliable voice of the Dodgers of Vin Scully. Scully's unique voice was sometimes the only thing Dodger fans could count on all day. "One evening in 2010, Scully suffered what doctors later diagnosed as a vasovagal episode; he stood up too fast, got dizzy, fainted, and fell, hitting his head. Eighty-two-year-old Scully was back in the broadcast booth just days later"(Vin Scully st).
Scully did whatever he could to stay in the booth and be here for the people to hear the voice of the Dodgers. Throughout sickness and injury he did whatever was needed to stay reliable. He wanted to stay the light at the end of the tunnel"But really, we wanted to see only one man: Vin Scully, the team's announcer since Harry Truman was in office." ( Silverman) This quote shows how Vin Scully was looked up to. Grown man were turned into little boys wanting to see and hear the voice of the Dodgers. He is seen as inhuman but he doesn't let that go to his head he acts the same as if they were friends who have know each other for years. Has said before Vin Scully is a reliable man who can be counted on by all. He would talk to anyone or help anyone, He treated everyone equal.

Vin Scully is a man of consistency he has lived his live the same way for over 60 years. From Brooklyn To Los Angeles it did matter where Vin Scully was always find ways to talk sports. It didn't matter if it was talk show or a sportscast he was talking sports. A "literate baseball announcer who, in more than fifty years with the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers, used evocative descriptions and an eye for detail to establish himself as perhaps the most outstanding and influential broadcaster in the game's history."(ENDERS)This quote shows how Scully was constantly a hero. He gave someone a person to count on for over 50 years. He was sometimes the thing people could count on in there life.Known as the "Voice of the Dodgers," Vin Scully is one of the top sportscasters in American history. In addition to his more than sixty years as a play-by-play announcer for the Brooklyn and then Los Angeles Dodgers, Scully announced play-by-play for the World Series, All-Star games, Game of the Week, National Football League (NFL) games, and Professional Golfers' Association (PGA) Tour events, exposing his mellifluous vocal styling to viewers from coast to coast."(Vin Scully ST)This Quote show how Scully is constantly doing something and finding new ways to be the voice of anything and bring joy to people's lives. He did whatever he could to keep his voice alive and heard."Despite having followed the franchise from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, Scully exhibits little bias for the team that employs him. He remains stubbornly impartial, so much so that the occasional Dodgers player has questioned his loyalties. He loves the Dodgers, but his appreciation of baseball is aesthetic, so he celebrates excellence in the Dodgers ace Zack Greinke as readily as he does in, say, Gerardo Parra, a journeyman outfielder whose strong defensive play when he was on the Arizona Diamondbacks made him a Scully favorite. ''(Silverman) Although at some times the players and coaches joked with Scully about his loyalty to the Dodgers. It was Known Scully Bleed Blue he was a Dodger at heart. He enjoyed the game of baseball too much too not acknowledge talent when he saw it. Has said before Vin Scully has lived his live day by day, the same talking sports.
As said before Vin Scully posses the trait reliability humbleness and conscience therefore it can be said that Vin Scully is an American hero. Basically Vin Scully was and still is Inspiration wherever he goes he does whatever he can to make your day or help you. He also had one of the biggest careers in sports. He was always talking about sports. Scully inspires me because he has been work for an incredible amount of time and still overwhelmingly succeeds at his craft. He has truly perfected the heart of commentary.He also is a big inspiration because Scully believes that he is merely a "normal" person just doing his job, but he means much more to some many apart of the Dodgers Family and fan base. He is the hero to them and they are watching him and his legacy in the booth. Too sum it up His voice was one of a kind, he truly is the voice of the Dodgers.
