That Time Glenn Frey Joined Vin Scully in the Broadcast Booth

A quick glance at any Glenn Frey tribute piece and you’re going to read, mostly, about the more than 100 million records he and The Eagles sold.

Dig a little deeper, and you’ll surely read about the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s turn as an actor…both on “Miami Vice” and in “Jerry Maguire”. But, it turns out, Frey wasn’t content just being a chart-topping singer and actor.

Dude wanted to do baseball play-by-play.

In 1985, Frey got his chance to test out his chops in the broadcast booth when he had the privilege to join legendary Los Angeles Dodger announcer Vin Scully.

And the results? Check it out for yourself.

That Pedro Guerrero home run call might not have been the best, but, still…sharing the booth with Scully?

Yes, please.

Frey died Monday. He was 67.
