Today was going to be a big news day anyway with the trade deadline, but then this happened:

It’s too bad the Dodgers were in San Francisco when the news broke, but Scully’s famous even-handedness would not have allowed any home favoritism by insisting on dying during a home game. And even Giants fans were eager to show their appreciation for a baseball life like no other.

Thanks for all the great baseball memories, Vin. God bless and rest in peace.
