In case you didn’t know, I’m a HUGE Los Angeles Dodgers fan — since 1973, to be exact!
It’s been a fun couple of weeks into the postseason as the Dodgers work their way towards the World Series.
I prefer listening to the radio broadcast of the games over watching the games on TV or livestream. Charley Steiner and Rick Monday (former LA Dodger) are full of baseball knowledge and they are Dodger experts. I learn something new every time I listen to them. Plus, Charley and Rick are good friends, which makes their commentary even better. For me, they have made the transition away from the incomparable Vin Scully a lot easier.
Another benefit of radio broadcasts is the absence of Hollywood-style production and slick commercials to distract me from taking care of other things while I listen. It’s a win-win!
Tonight, the Dodgers play the Atlanta Braves as the teams begin the National League Championship Series. GO DODGERS!

My father-in-law was a huge Dodger fan. Though I was never a fan of baseball I enjoyed hearing Vin Skully’s voice doing the sports casting and was bummed when he retired.
Vin was great! He still shows up every now and then to voice a Dodger special or celebration. He earned his retirement, that’s for sure! Baseball is the only sport I follow; I have no interest in the others, but with three brothers, I experienced them all and had a lot of fun watching them fight with each other over the games!
