MLB 49 43 Baseball's best announcers 11190384 Vin Scully Vin+Scully MLB

Recruited out of college by another radio legend, Red Barber, Scully began announcing games for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1950. He eventually moved with the team to Los Angeles in 1958 and continues to be one of the franchise's most beloved personalities. Scully, 84, announced on Aug. 26, 2012 that he will be back in the booth for the Dodgers for an unprecedented 64th season. Scully has covered three perfect games, 25 no-hitters, 25 World Series, six Dodgers World Series championships and 12 All-Star Games and his calls are among the most memorable in sports.

(Jan. 25, 1918 – May 4, 2010)
Harwell spent 42 of 55 broadcasting years as the voice of the Detroit Tigers, retiring in 2002. He is the only broadcaster ever traded for a player. In 1948, Dodgers president Branch Rickey arranged for Harwell, the announcer for the minor-league Atlanta Crackers, to be sent to Brooklyn to fill in for the ailing Red Barber, in exchange for catcher Cliff Dapper.

(Feb. 17, 1908 – Oct. 22, 1992)
Barber, or The Ol' Redhead, called play-by-play for four decades with the Cincinnati Reds, Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Yankees. Barber (shown with Pee Wee Reese and Gil Hodges) recruited a young aspiring broadcaster named Vin Scully for CBS football coverage and eventually invited him into the Dodgers' broadcast booth to succeed Ernie Harwell in 1950.

(March 1, 1914 – Feb. 18, 1998)
The bespectacled Caray began his colorful career with the St. Louis Cardinals, also spending time in Oakland, before settling in Chicago with the White Sox and ultimately the Cubs. Perhaps more memorable even than his game calling and his signature phrase "Holy Cow" was Caray leading fans in singing "Take me Out to the Ballgame" during each seventh-inning stretch.

"Mr. Baseball," a former player known for his self-deprecating wit, began his announcing career in 1971 calling play-by-play with the Milwaukee Brewers, a position he still holds. In April 2010, Uecker underwent successful heart surgery and resumed work three months later. He's also known for his appearance in the motion picture Major League ("Juuust a bit outside").
