A few months back, MLB Network did a "Prime 9" show listing the top baseball announcers ever.

Sadly, with the passing of Ernie Harwell, only one of the nine - Vin Scully - still is with us.

Happily, Vin still is on the job.

Here is the list:

1.      Vin Scully 

2.      Mel Allen

3.      Red Barber

4.      Jack Buck

5.      Ernie Harwell

6.      Harry Kalas
