Dodgers rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig hit a grand slam against the Braves last night, his third homer in four major league games, and the Dodgers won the game 5-0 due in large part to the grand slam. Vin Scully's call of the homer was pretty much perfect, as after he freaked out when the ball left the yard, he let the crowd's cheering take over. We've seen that happen numerous tims with Hawk Harrelson, but Scully wasn't pouting like Harrelson does - he was letting everyone soak in an amazing moment.
Contrast that to Charley Steiner's call, also on the above clip, where he lets the silence take over for a little bit before putting his stamp on it with a fantastic call of "this doesn't happen even in Hollywood...but it did!"
After the game, Puig got his first career Gatorade shower. The Cuban sure has taken Los Angeles by storm.
And that's why Vin Scully is one of the greatest baseball announcers ever. He knows when to let the moment speak for him.
Having an autoplay video ad that runs in the middle of a featured video is pretty bad web strategy. Maybe take those out altogether, because people hate them and might not visit the site again as a result.
