Vin Scully gets in Guinness World Records book

It’s hard to imagine watching a Los Angeles Dodgers game without Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully calling it.

For 66 years Scully has been serenading baseball fans with sound analysis and compelling stories during games, and we’re lucky that he recently announced he’ll be returning next season (although he also said it will likely be his last).

Scully earned a major accolade on Wednesday night, as he set a Guinness World Record for longest-serving sports broadcaster for any team.

Guinness World Records’ adjudicator Alex Angert presented Scully with a plaque detailing his record.

Angert also gave a short statement regarding Scully’s achievement (via CBSLA.com).

“Vin’s career has been officially amazing, and we are glad to welcome him into the Guinness World Records family,” he said.

Wednesday also happened to be Vin Scully Bobblehead Night, and the first 40,000 fans in attendance received this awesome miniature version of the play-by-play guru.

All in all, it was a great night at Dodger Stadium.

It’s Scully’s world, and we’re just lucky enough to be living in it. When it comes to awards for sports broadcasters, it’d be easier to just give him all of them. Scully truly is one of a kind.
