This is awesome!!!!!!

Vin Scully couldn't believe his ears when he got a phone call from the White House Wednesday informing him that he's receiving an honor from President Obama ... saying, "Oh my gosh, no. Are you sure?"

Cameras were rolling when White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest called the L.A. Dodgers legend to let him know he's a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom ... the highest civilian honor any President can give.

The always humble Scully reacted in the very way you'd expect -- "I'm just an old baseball announcer."

Earnest explains why Obama tapped him for the medal -- it's an extremely cool moment.
