Listen to Vin Scully tell a story about Satchel Paige, Whitey Herzog and a bet over a bottle of bourbon

Most broadcasters can’t simultaneously follow game action and do a promo for the local Lincoln-Mercury dealer without stumbling over themselves eight times. Vin Scully can tell you a great story about Whitey Herzog betting a 50-year-old Satchel Paige a bottle of bourbon that he couldn’t throw a ball through a hole in a wall, all while keeping track of the count.

Go for the story. Stay for the “wild child  . . .”
