“We have lost an icon,” Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten said in a statement. “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.”

His beloved wife Sandra passed away in 2021. They were married in 1973.

He was the voice of Dodgers baseball for 67 years. His last broadcast came in October 2016.

Scully called Dodgers baseball from 1950 through 2016. He was the longest-tenured broadcaster for a single professional team.

“We lost the greatest ever to do it,” Dodgers play-by-play man Joe Davis, who succeeded Scully full-time in 2017, said during Tuesday night’s broadcast. “Vin Scully was and is and always will be the Dodgers. His voice will always be the voice of baseball.”
