Going, Going, Gone!

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: August 4, 2022

Vin Scholly, the beloved Dodgers play-by-play announcer waves goodbye…

Dodger Blue is feeling blue. 
The broadcast booth is dark.
The man who brought the game to life
has sadly left the park.

He rounded third on Tuesday night  
and safely slid in home.
His well-lived life brought joy to ours.
But now we feel alone.

The prince of play-by-play has died.
Vin Scully has moved on.
That warm and winsome voice we loved 
is going, going, gone!

Peace to his memory!
