Iconic and beloved American baseball broadcaster Vin Scully passed away aged 94, as reported on Wednesday, August 3.

The death of American baseball broadcaster Vin Scully was announced by the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team who tweeted:

“He was the voice of the Dodgers, and so much more. He was their conscience, their poet laureate, capturing their beauty and chronicling their glory from Jackie Robinson to Sandy Koufax, Kirk Gibson to Clayton Kershaw.”

“Vin Scully was the heartbeat of the Dodgers – and in so many ways, the heartbeat of all of Los Angeles. Vin passed away at the age of 94 on August 2, 2022. ”

“We have lost an icon,” said Dodger President & CEO Stan Kasten. “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 Dodgers. 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”
