On November 8, Vin Scully will receive the George H.W. Bush Distinguished Alumnus Award from the National College Baseball Hall of Fame at the Bel-Air Country Club.
The award has a nice historical touch, given that Scully was an outfielder at Fordham and played against Bush’s Yale team in April 1947.
“Mr. Scully is representative of what the Bush Award stands for,” National College Baseball Hall of Fame president and CEO Mike Gustafson said. “He is the voice of baseball for so many, and this will be a great evening.”
