Here's one for the books: under the "Sights and Sounds" section of this page at the Atlanta Braves' MLB.com website is Vin Scully's call of Hank Aaron's 715th home run. You'll remember that Aaron hit it off the Dodgers' Al Downing, which is why Scully broadcast it; he was and remains the Dodgers' broadcasting genius. Why did I think of this? Because of Barry Bonds' assault on Aaron's record, of course. Several of the broadcasters who may be called upon to describe that event gave their thoughts about doing so here.
Anyway, it's 6+ minutes of Vinnie at his best. Have a listen.
