Vin Scully, who is widely regarded as the greatest broadcaster in the history of sports, has been enamored with the sound of play-by-play for all but the first few of his 86 years. “I was about 8 years old when it first manifested itself,” Scully, who is in the middle of his unprecedented 65th season calling games for the Dodgers organization, told The Hollywood Reporter from the Dodger Stadium press box earlier this month. “We had a big, old, four-legged radio in the living room with a cross piece at the bottom, and I would take

Time Warner Cable, DirecTV At Odds Over Dodgers Channel

3 April 2014 7:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Baseball season has barely gotten underway, but Dodgers fans who subscribe to DirecTV may already be out of luck this season.

Time Warner Cable has revealed that the company is no longer in negotiations with DirecTV to carry the Dodgers-owned SportsNet La channel, meaning roughly 70 percent of L.A. households will be left without access to the team’s baseball games.

A Time Warner rep confirmed the news Thursday evening, saying “We can confirm that DirecTV has left the negotiating table. We were advised by their negotiating team that they would not counter our last proposal and that conversations were at an end.”

But DirecTV contended their statement, saying “nothing could be further from the truth.”

A spokesman for the satellite TV provider told Variety they intended to continue to engage with Time Warner Cable and called the move “another transparent attempt to manipulate all TV customers throughout the region. »

Vin Scully narrates Los Angeles earthquake during Dodgers-Angels baseball

29 March 2014 3:44 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Your browser does not support iframes.

When a moderate earthquake hit the Los Angeles area on Friday (March 28), the L.A. Dodgers and Anaheim Angels were playing a game at Dodgers Stadium. That allowed veteran announcer Vin Scully to narrate pretty much the entire incident.

Not that you'd realize it was any big deal, considering the calm and almost disinterested voice of Scully.

It was the sixth inning of game 1 in the Freeway Series when the quake hit at 9:09 p.m. Scully mentions the tremor as it hits and considers it nothing but a small bit of shaking. Certainly the earthquake doesn't seem to disrupt the game. Although attendees at the Stadium later told local news reporters they did feel the tremor in their seats, Scully points out in his commentary that no notable reaction is heard from the crowd.
