Iconic Dodgers Broadcaster Vin Scully Passes Away at Age 94

Another sports legend passed away this week. Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully died last night at the age of 94. The Bronx native joined the team in 1950 when they were still in Brooklyn. Throughout 67 years of serving as the voice of the Dodgers — the longest stint with one team by a broadcaster in sports history — Scully also called 25 World Series, 12 All-Star Games and various other sports for CBS and NBC.


Scully was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982, the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016, and was awarded the honor of the Top Sportscaster of All-Time in 2009. His name hangs in Dodger stadium beneath the press box, and Vin Scully Avenue welcomes fans to Dodger Stadium.


“He was the voice of the Dodgers, and so much more. He was their conscience, their poet laureate, capturing their beauty and chronicling their glory from Jackie Robinson to Sandy Koufax, Kirk Gibson to Clayton Kershaw… Vin Scully was the heartbeat of the Dodgers – and in so many ways, the heartbeat of all of Los Angeles. — Team Statement
