#Cubs Joe and #Dodgers Mr. Scully
When Vin Scully calls, Joe Maddon not only listens, but makes the trek from the clubhouse to the press box to meet with the Dodgers legendary broadcaster. Scully, 87, asked if Maddon would meet with him prior to Friday’s Cubs-Dodgers game at Dodger Stadium to go over some of the broadcaster’s notes and to say hello to the manager’s mother, Beanie.
“The one thing he really wanted to make sure of was to send his regards to Beanie,” said Maddon, who sent text messages to his family to pass that on to his mother.
“He’s got all this information, some of the different quotes,” Maddon said of Scully. “It was pretty impressive. I’ve never asked for my photograph to be taken with anybody but we did, and I’ll keep that one.”
Maddon said Scully was very much aware of the young Cubs and wanted to know something about the players.
“It was a nice meeting, I’m very honored, but to get my photograph taken with him is very special,” Maddon said.
