Sportscaster Vin Scully to Visit CBS SUNDAY MORNING, 9/16

After more than six decades in the broadcast booth for the Dodgers, Vin Scully tells CBS SUNDAY MORNING's Lee Cowan he still gets goosebumps doing the job.

"That's really the thermometer for my love affair, my fever," Scully tells Cowan in an interview airing this weekend on CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH Charles Osgood. "As long as I get the goosebumps, I know that I should be doing it."

Scully got his start fresh out of Fordham University when the Brooklyn Dodgers' play-by-play man Red Barber noticed he had talent. He's been part of the Dodgers since 1950. By the time he was 25, he was calling his first World Series – the youngest to ever do so. When the Dodgers left Brooklyn for Los Angeles, Scully went, too.

Scully talks about his career, the toll being part of a major league team takes on a family and his preparation. He doesn't practice any of his calls, he says.

"Gosh, no, no," he tells Cowan. "I would be scared to death of having something that I think was so precious, that I couldn't wait to get on the air, and I'd mess it up. No, what comes out good, bad or otherwise, it's not only me, it's me at the moment."

Scully is signed on for one more season behind the microphone – his 64th – though he can't imagine giving it up yet. "There's no way I could say goodbye to all of this," he tells Cowan. "Not yet, anyway. In my heart, I just can't do it. Not yet."

Cowan's interview with Scully will air Sunday, Sept. 16 on CBS SUNDAY MORNING (9-10:30 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.
