Rare Photos of Vin Scully
Vin Scully has announced he'll return to the Dodgers in 2011 to broadcast games for an amazing 62nd season. In 1953, at the age of 25, he became the youngest person to ever broadcast a World Series game, a record that still stands. He has called 28 of them altogether, another record.
Scully, who famously calls games alone, was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982.
