Vin Scully's iconic voice on the AT&T videoboard welcomed a sellout crowd to Game No. 162 -- the regular-season finale, yes, and more notably the last of his decorated, Hall of Fame broadcasting career.

"It's time for Giant-Dodger baseball, the greatest rivalry in all of professional sports," Scully declared.

The San Francisco Giants beat Los Angeles 7-1 to clinch a wild-card berth.

Scully attended morning Mass in the ballpark as is his usual Sunday routine, and then headed for his booth to work as he has done for an astounding 67 years - exactly 80 years after the Bronx-born Scully became a Giants fan at age 8 in New York.

What Scully said to Giants legend Willy Mays was classic.
