Humans were his passion. As a whole, he was an enthusiastic individual. In particular, he was a huge Dodgers and baseball fan. Also, he had a soft spot in his heart for his relatives. His words will echo through the ages and remain indelible in our memories. To be with Sandi, the love of his life, I’m sure was something he was eagerly anticipating. We pray for his loved ones as they go through this tragic moment. We’ll miss Vin terribly.”

According to the team, which communicated with Scully’s family members, Scully passed away in the comfort of his home in the Hidden Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. There was no indication of what caused the death.

Scully was the announcer in the history of professional sports who worked for a single team for the longest amount of time. He was there for everything and saw everything. He began his career in the 1950s, during the time of Pee Wee Reese and Jackie Robinson.

He then moved on to the 1960s, during the time of Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax, the 1970s, during the time of Steve Garvey and Don Sutton, and the 1980s, during the time of Orel Hershiser and Fernando Valenzuela. In the 1990s, it was Mike Piazza and Hideo Nomo, and in the 21st century, it was Clayton Kershaw, Manny Ramirez, and Yasiel Puig. In the 1990s, it was Hideo Nomo and Mike Piazza.

He surpassed everyone else and was the greatest of all time. There’s a lot of history and a lot of people who have come through when you think about the Dodgers. It’s basically an all-around legendary series. Vin isn’t really involved at first, but he’s a major player “Kershaw stated after Tuesday night’s game in San Francisco between the Dodgers and the Giants. “He’s really one in a million. “I’m really appreciative that I got to spend some quality time with him.

Scully with his calming and analytical manner remained a constant for the fans despite the fact that the Dodgers made changes to their players, managers, executives, and owners. They even moved coasts.

At  the beginning of each program, he would say, “Hello, everybody, and a very nice good evening to you wherever you may be.”

Scully regarded himself, both in person and on the air, as nothing more than a conduit between the game and the fans. He was always gracious in both settings. A video tribute to Vin Scully was played on the video board in San Francisco after the Los Angeles Dodgers were victorious.

No one tells a greater tale, and I think most of us think of him as a member of the family “Manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers Dave Roberts made the following statement. “Multiple generations of families have watched him on television. A great life, one that will leave an indelible mark, was lived by him.”

Scully was paid by the Dodgers, but he never let that stop him from voicing his displeasure with a poor play or a manager’s choice or his admiration for an opponent while creating tales against a background of everyday events and extraordinary feats. When asked about his priorities, he would always say that he preferred to observe things with his eyes rather than his heart.

“He had a voice & a style of narrating that made you think he was only talking to you,” former Lakers great and now part-owner of the Dodgers Magic Johnson remarked on Twitter. “Outside of the booth, Vin was the nicest and sweetest man you’d ever meet, and he was much loved by everyone in the Dodgers organization.
