Glenn Frey aspired to be baseball broadcaster, once called Dodgers game with Vin Scully
Glenn Frey, who passed away Monday at the age of 67, was extremely talented in more ways than one. The guitarist and founding member of the Eagles was a huge sports fan and had aspirations of becoming a baseball play-by-play broadcaster.
Frey once had the chance to live out that dream, when a MLB production about music and baseball brought him into the booth with none other than legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully.
Alongside Scully, Frey called a few innings of a 1985 Dodgers-Astros game — and he turned out to be pretty good at it.
Frey even had the opportunity to call a Pedro Guerrero home run, which had him briefly wondering, "is it gone?"
The pairing of Frey and Scully wrapped up into a classic ’80s montage is definitely worth watching.
