Vin Scully played a part in the Super Bowl, enhancing the fan experience.

Everyone knows that Vin Scully was a great player on the Dodgers baseball team.

But did you know that he played a part in changing the Super Bowl?

In early 1983, when the NFL played its landmark game in the Rose Bowl—Miami Dolphins vs. Washington Redskins—the league transmitted the sound of every game into the tunnels and restrooms of the stadium for the first time, and installed televisions in the concession in force.

This came as NFL chief executive Jim Stig was a witness at Dodger Stadium a few months ago.

“It’s funny because a lot of things are coming back to Dodger Stadium,” said The Stig, who oversaw the Super Bowl for many years. “I remember going to the Dodger game, being in the bathroom and hearing Vin Scully’s voice in the bathroom. And I say, “Wow, this is incredible. Dodgers are so smart they put sound in all the toilets.

“What better way to do this? The worst thing that ever happened to you is when you have to go in and go to the bathroom, something happens and you don’t know what the hell is going on. What a brilliant idea it was to put sound there.

“But they didn’t have sound. Everyone was carrying their little transistor radios. So my idea was, let’s put sound in here. So we did it, we turned up the sound in the elevators, we put it in the lobbies. We put monitors in the shopping malls.” kiosks.
