I knew it was a long shot, but I sent a ball to Dodger's Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully recently and got this letter back instead. I'm disappointed, but I'm not surprised that I didn't get my ball signed. I imagine that Scully gets more mail than any other announcer in baseball. It would have been nice, but oh well.
I'll probably end up buying an authenticated ball of his at some point, but man, they are EXPENSIVE!
This is only my 4th failure in all of the TTMs I have sent out: Emilio Navarro, Duke Snider, Eddie Joost and Vin Scully. Navarro died as the ball was in the mail and Snider and Joost ended up being in very poor health. Scully is the only one who sent any kind of response. I'll end up sending this ball out for another TTM try, but I'm just not sure yet as to who I'm going to send it to.
