Andy Reid grew up in Los Angeles, attended high school there and worked as a vendor at Dodger Stadium. And yes, he listened to Vin Scully.

Scully, 88, is calling his final games for the Dodgers this weekend in San Francisco. His 67 seasons calling Dodgers games in Brooklyn and Los Angeles are longest time any broadcaster as spent with a single team in sports history. Reid remembers listening to Scully in the 1960s and 1970s.

“You’d almost turn the TV off to hear him do the game on radio,” Reid said. “A tribute to all the redheads out there. He’s a great one.”
