That's not all. The Dodgers' Twitter even featured some of Scully's unmistakably Scully-esque on-air quotes throughout the night's bout with the Reds.
"One of the oldest expressions in baseball- speed never has a slump. If you can run you've got part of the game licked & Puig can run." -Vin- Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) July 26, 2013
"Little tapper, speared by Greinke, down to Ramirez -- they double him up. Nice play by Zack Greinke to turn that into a double play." -Vin- Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) July 26, 2013
"They ought to give the #Dodgers Hanley Ramirez an Oscar or at least an Emmy." -Vin Scully- Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) July 26, 2013
But you'll need to watch this video to experience the true highlight of the evening. As Scully received a standing ovation from the Dodger Stadium faithful, the veteran broadcaster of 64 years clutched his heart, visibly moved by the abundant display of affection.
So. Many. Feelings.
