A lot of good names on this list - including Jackie Robinson, Kobe Bryant and more
The Times held a monthlong March Madness-style tournament in which 128 entrants were divided and seeded into four 32-person regionals (baseball, basketball, football and wild card). Scully, who easily won the baseball regional, defeated the legendary Rams’ defensive unit of the late 1960s, the Fearsome Foursome, in the final four. That left him to face Lakers great Magic Johnson in the final after Johnson defeated Jackie Robinson in the other final four matchup.
Scully defeated Johnson 62.1%-37.9%. More than 45,000 votes were cast for the final.
