Hawk is all about Hawk.
After a hitter gets knocked down and stares down the pitcher, does Vin Scully launch into a story about how Jackie Robinson in such situation wouldn't posture, he would lay down a bunt up the first base line and rip open the leg of whoever was covering first? I used to hear such stories when I was a kid. I heard them from my father who grew up a Dodger fan in New Jersey and listened to the games on the radio. He listened to Red Barber and Vin Scully.

I listened to a lot of Vin Scully in when I was living in Southwestern Arizona. I don't recall him launching into Jackie Robinson or Duke Snider stories or even Don Drysdale stories. It isn't that he doesn't have reverence for the history of the game. I always got the impression that he knows the game, its history and has has the greatest respect for it. It's that he focuses on the game in front of him.

Vin Scully is about the game.
