Scully, 93, has had to endure several losses involving those close to him. His first wife died in 1972 of an accidental overdose at the age of 35. His eldest son, Michael, died in a helicopter crash in 1994 at the age of 33.
Scully started calling Dodgers games in 1950. By the time he retired in 2016, he was the last remaining link to the organization’s time in Brooklyn.
RIP, Sandra Scully.
