Vin Scully was the Dodgers' long-time voice and a legendary MLB broadcaster. He also contributed a lot to the sport at the age of 94.
According to TMZ Sports, the organization confirmed the sad news in a statement on Tuesday night, saying the veteran died at his home in Hidden Hills. No cause of death was mentioned.
According to Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten, "we have lost an icon." Vin Scully was one of the finest voices in sports, both as a broadcaster and as a humanitarian.
He loved people. He loved life. He loved baseball and the Dodgers. He loved his family.
His voice will always be heard and etched in all of our thoughts forever.
In this very difficult time, Kasten said, our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Vin will be greatly missed.
Back in 1950, when the Dodgers still occupied Brooklyn, he continued to broadcast games until their move to L.A. in 1957, calling almost every major game in the franchise's history until his retirement in 2016.
Scully also broadcasted national baseball, golf, and football events. This included the 1982 Dallas vs. San Francisco NFC Championship Game.
In 1982, he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fames broadcaster wing. He leaves five children, 21 grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. RIP.
