Arguably the most beloved man in Los Angeles is Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully.
Scully enjoyed a 67-year career calling games for the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers from 1950-2016, and even though he is almost five years into retirement, he still remains a big part of the organization.
Many fans have been wondering. Tom Hoffarth caught up with Vin Scully and shared an update on Twitter on how he is doing
Just wanted to share: Vin sounded sharp as usual in a half-hour phone check-in Friday. "My health is very good even thought I’m surrounded people trying to protect me from God knows what. But I have no complaints. ... That's the story, morning glory.
Today, Vin Scully spoke with Bill Plaschke in the Los Angeles Times to talk about the loss of his wife in early January.
“I’m OK, I really am,” he said. “I’ve been severely wounded, but I’ve also come to grips with it. I believe it’s all God’s plans. I’m just trying to do the best that I can for as long as I have.”
The beginning of the 2021 year was very difficult for him as his wife, Sandi, passed away after a long battle with ALS. He also mourned the losses of former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda and Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron.
