A humbled President Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States, presents the Presidential Medal of Freedom to American sportscaster and legend Vin Scully on 16th November 2016. The Presidential Medal of Honor is considered the United States' highest civilian honor.

President Obama "The game of baseball has a handful of signature sounds -- you hear the crack of the bat, you've got the crowd singing in the seventh-inning stretch and you've got the voice of Vin Scully," Obama said.

Vin Scully , is an American legendary sportscaster and was the preeminent voice of Major League baseball . Vin won over fans from all walks of live throughout America. Mr Vin Scully is best known for his 67 seasons calling games for Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Dodgers, beginning in 1950 in Brooklyn and ending in 2016

"Most fans listen to a game's broadcast when they can't be at the ballpark; generations of Dodgers fans brought radios into the stands because you didn't want to miss one of Vin's stories," Obama said. "Since Jackie Robinson started at second base, Vin taught us the game and introduced us to its players," Obama said. "He narrated the improbable years, the impossible heroics, turned contests into conversations."

This photograph is actually one of two favorites of Mr Vin Scully's from that day. I am very happy and honored to bring this photograph to you all . Vin, himself, has a large format Museum quality print of this very image I took, in his own private collection. This photograph compellingly captures the humility and dignity of the moment and the gravitas of the historic occasion in American sports history.

This artwork comes with a framed large format limited edition museum-archive quality signed print shipped anywhere worldwide.

It is a strong piece in my Celebrate Hope Obama Collection real life exhibit, that I juxtaposition with my image of Bruce Springsteen and President Obama that I took on the same day.

I do this as when I was there photographing, I noticed that President Obama would assume a different stance and emotional inner tone with each recipient. My photographs are intimate and bring us inside the moment. I wanted to highlight the contrast between President Obama as he interacts with both men.

President Obama is moved and humbled to be in Vin Scully's presence and then with singer Bruce Springsteen puffs his chest out , stands tall and like Bruce Springsteens nickname -"the boss" , assumes "the boss".

Vin Scully of course was characteristically humble about being honored. Vin's other favorite photograph, is an informal snap shot on a mobile phone. "Quite humbling standing amongst giants, Jordan/Abdul-Jabber/Springsteen as these Hall of Famers are-and can you believe the lead singer agreed to stand in the back" -referring to Springsteen.

Vin Scully - American Legend.

This is a rare unique 1/1 directly from my Celebrate Hope the Obama Collection exhibit that debuted and exhibits in notable art galleries starting on Black History Month 2017
