The Dodgers are knee-deep in their hunt for the 7th championship in franchise history. Of course, their last World Series title came back in 1988, 32 years ago. And exactly 32 years ago today, Kirk Gibson cranked a pinch-hit, 2-run, walk off home run to secure a game 1 win for the underdog Dodgers.
Flash forward to 2020, today the legendary Vin Scully recalls the incredible moment in baseball history. In fact, he shares a little-known nugget from that day and moment.

Yes, Vinny helped set the stage on the national broadcast for what has become one of the most iconic moments in baseball history. While Gibson’s homer obviously does the heavy lifting, Vinny’s setup for the home audience has undoubtedly made the moment stand the test of time.
Brilliant people understand the moment. Thank you for sharing, Mr. Scully.
