Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Bob Costas and Tom Verducci, each episode of THE SOUNDS OF BASEBALL focuses on one famed broadcaster from Major League Baseball's storied history. Costas and Verducci share anecdotes, personal stories, and their thoughts on the impact each broadcaster has had on baseball and generations of fans.

The series premiered on Monday, June 8, 2020 from 8-10pm ET/5-7pm PT, as MLB Network debuted a two-hour episode about Vin Scully -- 52 years to the day that Scully called Dodgers Hall of Fame pitcher Don Drysdale breaking Hall of Famer Walter Johnson's consecutive scoreless innings streak in 1968. Scully's calls of perfect games by Sandy Koufax and Don Larsen will be included, as well as his call of Hank Aaron's record-breaking 715th home run in 1974. "So much of baseball history is best remembered by the way great broadcasters described those moments," said Costas. "No broadcaster called as many of those moments as Vin Scully. So it's fitting that the first of our series of broadcaster appreciations will be devoted to Vin and many of his finest broadcasts." Verducci added, "Vin Scully is a unique American treasure who combines the storytelling wit of Twain and the trustworthiness of [Walter] Cronkite. Listening to him perfectly lay down the soundtrack to so much baseball history in real time is, and forever will be, amazing."
