Boston gift commemorates Scully’s big break
From the bitter cold of Fenway Park in the fall of 1949, Vin Scully broadcast the Boston-Maryland football game without complaint, impressing the man who had given him the job, Red Barber. That ultimately led to Scully being hired by the Dodgers to start the 1950 season.
Today, Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski (third from left) and announcers Joe Castigilione and Dave O’Brien presented Scully with a framed copy of him the program from that game, along with an image of him at Fenway Park, as a going-away present.
