Game 206 | April 20, 1972 | Ray Scott
A television sports pioneer, Scott called his first NFL game on the Dumont Television Network. His original Minnesota Twins radio partners were Bob Wolfe and Halsey Hall. Wolfe left after one year and was replaced by Herb Carneal. The team of Scott, Hall and Carneal worked together from 1962 to 1966 when Scott left for a full-time job with CBS Television.
Game 264 | August 22, 1978 | Ray Scott, Paul Giel
Giel was entering his eighth year as athletic director at the University of Minnesota. Among the challenges he discussed was the need to renovate 54-year-old Memorial Stadium, and talk in the 1970s even included the possibility of doming the old facility. Scott, a member of the top CBS football broadcasting crew until 1973, was the first broadcaster named to the American Sportscasters Hall of Fame shortly after his death in 1998
