Vin Scully weaved a story about the Beatles escaping Dodger Stadium into his play-by-play

Sunday marked the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' live concert at Dodger Stadium, which took place on Aug. 28, 1966. It was the Fab Four's penultimate official live performance, not including their unannounced rooftop gig at Apple Records in 1969. 
During Sunday's Cubs-Dodgers matchup at Chavez Ravine, Vin Scully was fully aware of the date's significance -- after all, the Dodgers did just host Beatles Night on Friday in celebration: 

Scully, no stranger to weaving amazing stories into his play-by-play, took it upon himself to recount the adventures John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr had leaving the Stadium after their 11-song, 27-minute concert delivered to throngs of screaming, delirious fans. As seen atop this post, Scully spent part of the bottom of the fifth telling a tale that fits in perfectly with Beatles lore.
After Sunday, the Dodgers have only 13 home games remaining on their regular-season schedule. That means there are only 13 more chances to hear Scully tell stories like this on the air, before he calls it a career after 67 amazing seasons in the booth for the Dodgers. 
Try to catch as many of those remaining games as you can, as there's no such thing as too much Vin.
