The petition to have Vin Scully call one last World Series is gaining momentum.
Fox Sports play-by-play voice Joe Buck told the Los Angeles Daily News that he would step aside to have Scully call the action:
“Personally, I’d love it,” Buck said the other day. “We’ve always toyed with the idea of having the hometown guy involved in a World Series broadcast. I’m from that camp. In my dad’s era, we paid a nod of tribute to the greats. And there’s no one like Vin, or close to Vin. I’d happily step aside to hear his voice (on the World Series). I would not fight that at all. That’s just how I grew up. As far as I’m concerned, he could be part of it every year. I’m not selfish. I realize who the game’s greats are, and I always defer to them – my dad (Jack Buck), Ernie Harwell, Curt Gowdy, Harry Caray. There are only a handful of guys who are as identifiable with their organizations as any player is.”
Fox, please make this happen.
