Dodger President Walter O’Malley responds to a fan letter complimenting the work of radio broadcaster Vin Scully. O’Malley replies, “It was nice to receive your letter praising Vince Scully.

The Sporting News in their weekly editorial gives credit to the Dodger front office for the renewal of the contract of the popular Dodger Manager and his coaching staff for the 1966 season. “President Walter O’Malley and his front-office chiefs subscribed to a unique theory. They feel duty-bound to accept their full share of the blame when the Dodgers disappoint their backers—which has happened more than once. The Dodger front office refuses to camouflage its own shortcomings by firing the manager. Instead, the club’s management comes to grips with the real problem—failure to come up with the talent necessary to win. This may prove momentarily embarrassing to the entire Dodger family, but it pays dividends. What National League club has a better long-term record than the Dodgers.”1
