This Vin Scully call on Kobe Bryant’s first pitch for the Dodgers will have you deep in your feelings


Vin Scully was an absolute treasure. There was something about his voice that just transported you to another place.

It was so soothing. So calming. Even in the final years of his career, Scully was still at the top of his game and just better than everyone else at calling games. This dude was a true legend and he’ll be missed.

Everyone is circulating their favorite Vin Scully moments across the internet now in the wake of his death. One of the moments people have been gravitating to on the NBA side of things is Scully’s call of Kobe Bryant’s first pitch for the Dodgers.

It’s a young Kobe, fresh off of a title run with the Lakers, taking the mound to throw out a ceremonial first pitch for LA. And with us losing both of these legends in recent years, this video will absolutely have you in your feels today if you’re fans of either of them.
