Vin Scully's play-by-play on earthquake -- so calm, cool

The Dodgers announcer calls the Southern California quake on Friday night.

Vin Scully has been calling Dodgers games since they were in Brooklyn.

Nothing ever rattles Vin Scully. Which includes something that rattles everything.

The venerable Los Angeles Dodgers announcer was working the Dodgers-Angels exhibition game at Dodger Stadium Friday night when an earthquake struck Southern California. It registered 5.1. The quake apparently didn't cause any major damage.

But still, it was, you know, an earthquake.

However, Scully was his calm self.

"A little tremor here in the ballpark," Scully said, adopting the tone he might take to comment on a pitcher who is starting to lose his steam.

Scully then did a bit of recounting the devastating World Series quake in 1989. But always in that calm, reassuring voice that generations of Dodgers fans have so loved.

In any case, at least one Angels fan knew what had caused the quake.

H/T Big League Stew.
