Joe Davis offers touching thanks and farewell to Vin Scully

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS VS LOS ANGELES DODGERSAfter Thursday’s game, Dodger play-by-play announcer Joe Davis bid farewell to Dodger fans for 2016, in words that were equal parts gratitude for his first season and a tribute to Vin Scully that hit just the right note.

Vin, of course, will handle TV chores for the final weekend of his 67-season career, with the broadcasts from San Francisco tonight through Sunday simulcast on SportsNet LA, KTLA and AM 570 LA Sports. All playoff games thereafter will be national telecasts, with the National League Division Series beginning on either Fox Sports 1 or MLB Network.

Wonderful speech but next year why don’t they let Joe call it on his own. We stood out for years as a team with a single broadcaster when all the others either retired or passed away. I think this kid can carry the show instead of the other two guys going on and on while there’s Baseball happening. I will go the the radio next year if they continue in this pattern. Elana,(sic?) from the field level should stay she knows her stuff.
