Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully has passed away at the age of 94 years old. Scully ws born in the Bronx, New York, on November 29, 1927. By the time he was 23 years old, he was calling baseball games for the Brooklyn Dodgers and remained with the team until 2016.
Scully, who began calling games for the then-Brooklyn Dodgers in the year 1949, undoubtedly established himself as the most iconic voice in the history of Major League Baseball during his astounding 67-year-long broadcasting career.
He didn’t only call games for the Dodgers franchise, though, as Scully called various nationally-televised football and golf events for CBS Sports from 1975 to 1982 and served as NBC Sports’ lead baseball announcer from 1983 to 1989.
Given Scully’s status in the history of MLB, baseball fans of all ages and from all corners of the country took to social media to mourn his passing and celebrate his iconic life and career.

As an East Coast baseball fan, I associated Vin Scully with the end of the night — his broadcasts were the ones I chose to close out the evening from the West Coast. Lots of times his voice was the last I heard before I fell asleep. And he always made staying up feel worthwhile.

I’ve always appreciated good storytelling and an ability to go off-topic. Vin Scully was a master at both. Rest In Peace, sir 🙏 https://t.co/8Q6vU9OdtY

I had the privilege of having a career in baseball because of Vin Scully.
Endless summer nights in front of the TV, listening to Vin taught me the art of storytelling and baseball.
Rest easy, good sir. https://t.co/xgIWAp4D4K

Had a lot of nights falling asleep to Vin Scully calling the late game, learning a ton about baseball and about storytelling along the way. An absolute legend.
