Legendary MLB, Los Angeles Dodgers Broadcaster Vin Scully Passes Away

Written by Nate

Last night, the MLB and broadcasting world lost a legend as longtime announcer Vin Scully passed away at his home in the Hidden Hills neighborhood in Los Angeles. He was just 94 years old.

As a broadcaster, Scully was known for being a voice of the Dodgers in both Brooklyn, New York and Los Angeles, spanning over 60 years until his retirement in 2016.

His notable games he called include three perfect games, 18 no-hitters, and 25 World Series. Along with baseball, Scully was also the voice for NFL games and select PGA Tour events.

After his retirement, he made a few appearances at Dodger Stadium, but he remained content on staying close to family.

Vin was preceded in death by his first wife Joan, who died in 1972, his second wife, Sandra, who passed away last year due to complications from ALS and his son Michael, who died in a helicopter crash in 1994.

He was survived by his children: Kelly, Erin, Todd, Kevin and Catherine.
