Overlooked with all the hype (much deserved) about Vin Scully's retirement is that Dick Enberg also retired from broadcasting this past weekend. In recent years he had done the TV broadcasts for the San Diego Padres, but in his long and illustrious career, he was a jack-of-all-trades when it came to doing play-by-play, both on radio and TV. At one time, he was the most omnipresent sports broadcaster on TV. Back in the 60's when my family moved to the L.A. area, there was Vin Scully with the Dodgers, Chick Hearn with the Lakers, and Dick Enberg doing UCLA basketball, Rams football, and Angels baseball. Talk about being spoiled!
