Vin Scully, on Missed Opportunities

Vin Scully, from last night's telecast:

Big Wilver Stargell hit four hundred and seventy-five home runs in his career, and the greatest home run I never saw he hit here at Dodger Stadium.

He hit one over the bleachers, over the roof and out of sight, five hundred and six feet away. Jerry Doggett had the privilege of calling it.

I was in the restroom.

Let's go back to this one.

Yeah great, Scully. You missed the best.

That story's one of his staples, but I don't care. I could listen to Vin tell me the same story 162 times in a row.

Yeah I can almost recite it word for word, but like Josh said, I could hear it over and over and still enjoy it.

(Unlike his g.d. Randy Winn story.)

Last night during the game was the first time I'd heard this story. I thought it was pretty funny and wouldn't mind hearing it again.
