The best part of the Dodgers playing NL West teams down the stretch is getting to listen to Vin Scully call almost every single September game (he doesn’t travel to Colorado).

While he won’t be able to call playoff games on TV, Vin said he’ll be calling the first three and last three games on the radio as the Dodgers go for their first World Series title since 1988.

Every night that Scully calls a game, you definitely learn something new or hear a new story that only he could articulate and make you appreciate.
