During tonight’s LA Dodgers vs. New York Yankees game at 7:05 p.m. EST, there will be as much game-time entertainment online as on the field as 85-year-old Vin Scully takes over the Dodgers’ Twitter account for his first live tweetcast.
It’ll work a little differently than normal, however, as Scully isn’t too familiar with how Twitter works.
According to the L.A. Times, since Scully doesn’t have his own Twitter account, fans will be able to suggest questions to him via the Dodgers’ Twitter account, and a team employee will relay those questions to him. He will answer from home, the old-fashioned way.
“I’ll be on the phone with the Twitter guy,” Scully told the L.A. Times.
For an inkling of what to expect from Scully’s Twitter action, check out these two fan accounts created in his honor: @VinScully (“If Vin twittered, this is what he would twitter.” and @VinScullyTweet (“A fan tribute of the Hall of Fame Broadcaster.”).
Follow the action with hashtag #VinScully.
