Dodgers herald broadcaster as heartbeat and voice of Los Angeles
“We have lost an icon,” Dodger President and CEO Stan Kasten said. “The Dodgers’ Vin Scully was one of the greatest voices in all of sports. He was a giant of a man, not only as a broadcaster, but as a humanitarian. He loved people. He loved life. He loved baseball and the DDodgers. And he loved his family. His voice will always be heard and etched in all of our minds forever. I know he was looking forward to joining the love of his life, Sandi. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this very difficult time. Vin will be truly missed.”
Scully started broadcasting for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1950. He remained the voice of the team after the move to Los Angeles and spent decades adding color and narrative to Dodgers’ games until his retirement in 2016.
