USA Today has ranked baseball’s best radio announcers, by league. Marty Brennaman was ranked a little low, it seems to me, but then, I’m biased. Marty is the background soundtrack to my childhood.
Of course, he’s in the Hall of Fame, so some others agree with me.
Anyway, ranked number one in the National League is Vin Scully, the Dodgers’ veteran announcer. One of the greatest things about getting MLB Extra Innings and XM Radio this season is that I’ve been able to listen to Scully on a regular basis. He’s the best there is, even after more than fifty years in the business.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
