Dodgers vs. Giants, August 10, 1979

Behold the classicness as Vin Scully calls this blowout game up at Candlestick Park back in 1979. It’s got it all. Lopes 2B, Russell SS, Garvey 1B, Cey 3B, Baker LF, Ferguson C, Hatcher RF, Thomas CF. Sutton turning in a gem. The pants. The commercials. The whole thing. I was ten.

Vin Scully alone makes this thing worth rolling as background music. It’s as good a game to take in as any other.

“You’d have to call Lloyd’s of London to figure out the odds of Derrel Thomas hitting another grand slam right here.”
— Vin Scully
