If Joe Buck had a method, late, good Win Scully would have replaced Buck naming the World Series through printed merchandise.
“If he’s ever confirmed and says, ‘I’ll pitch an inning,’ I’m going to watch it,” Buck said on The Athletic’s “Sports Media” podcast Wednesday after Sculley’s death. Age 94 years.
Scully, the voice of the Dodgers for 67 years, is best known for 3 World Series while working for NBC Sports. Bock – noted as the 23rd World Series hitter for Fox – talked about how he tried to “put up with the middle man” and how others tried to play him to Scully.
“We’re not making it a circus, yet, people need to hear you on TV nationwide,” Buck told Scully. … , this may be one of the many strange attractions of my profession. I understand why he doesn’t have to. But I just wanted what he had.
Buck was so famous that Dodgers fans would constantly write letters saying “Let’s win”.
In the end, Scully — who retired in 2016 — wasn’t under any circumstances.
“That’s why I believe he didn’t.” “You’re entering a truly global realm, and now there’s a certain person talking in your ear, and you don’t know who he is. You’re working with a director you’ve never worked with before, and you’re also with an analyst. Working with someone you’ve never collaborated with before.”
