Amid the sixth inning of Tuesday night’s matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants, the Southland received the news of longtime Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully’s passing.

Scully, the legendary broadcaster and golden voice for the Dodgers, died at the age of 94.

The Dodgers announced Scully’s passing with a statement late Tuesday, posted across their social media.

“Vin Scully was the heartbeat of the Dodgers — and in so many ways, the heartbeat of all of Los Angeles,” the statement read.

His legacy was built over 67 seasons in Los Angeles as the beloved voice of the team. Vin stepped away from the Dodgers mic in 2016.

Scully began with the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1950s and joined the move to LA in 1958, where he made himself a piece of the organization’s identity and fan favorite for generations of Dodgers fans.

“We have lost an icon,” announced Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten in the statement. “The Dodgers’ Vin Scully was one of the greatest voices in all of sports.”

A life well lived.

Rest in Peace, Vin Scully (1927-2022)
