Legendary 88-Year-Old Baseball Announcer Hits Grand Slam; Crushes Socialism During Broadcast [VIDEO]

Legendary baseball play-by-play announcer Vin Scully, still miraculously crushing it at age 88, who has been “The Voice of the Dodgers, The Voice of LA,” since 1950 (Harry Truman was president, to provide some perspective), had one of his finest moments on Friday, providing some free advice to a nation of useful idiots from a man who has obtained a lot of wisdom over the decades.

If you happened to notice, “Vin Scully” was trending on Twitter Friday night. Worried, I clicked, hoping the aged announcer wasn’t having a health problem, and here’s why.

At a time when the number two vote-getter in one of the two major political parties is anti-freedom, wild-eyed socialist Bernie Sanders, Vin Scully decided to give the nation some schooling on socialism — and he hit it out of the park.

During the L.A. Dodgers vs. Milwaukee Brewers matchup on Friday, Brewers third baseman Hernan Perez, who is from the socialist hell hole known as Venezuela, was at the plate, and Scully unloaded about the evils of socialism.

“Socialism, failing to work as it always does — this time in Venezuela. You talk about giving everybody something free and all of a sudden there’s no food to eat. And who do you think is the richest person in Venezuela? The daughter of Hugo Chavez? 



Stand up and cheer, ladies and gentlemen. That is what we call a grand slam.

Socialism always ends up unable to provide even the most basic of human necessities, because there is no incentive for anyone to produce them.

Now, if only someone would ask Bernie Sanders and the rest of the Democrat Party to explain Venezuela. Oh wait, they did, and Bernie refused to answer.
