The baseball world mourns the loss of a beloved broadcaster as Vin Scully has died at 94. The hall-of-fame voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers died Tuesday.
The news of Scully’s death comes a little over a year after his wife Sandra died from her battle with ALS. Back on February 2021, Scully had also mourned the death of his longtime friend and fellow Dodgers legend Tommy Lasorda.
Dodgers fans and baseball fans across the world remember Scully's storytelling during his 67-year run as the voice of Los Angeles baseball. The New York native’s journey with the Dodgers began in 1950 when the team played their home games in Brooklyn. Scully followed the Dodgers in the team’s move to Los Angeles in 1958.
Scully’s illustrious career in the broadcast booth landed him in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982 and in 2016, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016.
