Womens Robert Golden Jersey Vin Scully retired after last season, which is sad. But his body of work is a gift that will keep on giving. You probably didn’t even know there was a recording of Scully calling Kirby Puckett’s famous walkoff homer in Game 6 of the 1991 World Series, did you? And Charlie Liebrandt has turned the lights out in the Metrodome again. Ouch, Vin.

Athlete skills exhibitions were a staple of sports TV in the ’80s. Ever wanted to see the Reds’ Gary Redus battle the Braves’ Dale Murphy in an obscure, NBC-sponsored home run derby narrated by Bob Costas in 1984? Here ya go!

Unfortunately for Miami fans, Mitch Haniger went 3 for 4 with three runs scored, four RBIs and a walk to help the Mariners win.
