Honkers pay tribute to Dodgers broadcaster, Vin Scully, who dies at 94
(ABC 6 News) – Baseball Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully, whose voice entertained Dodgers fans in Brooklyn and Los Angeles for 67 years, died Tuesday night. He was 94.
According to the team, Scully died at his home in the Hidden Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. No cause of death was provided.
Scully was the longest tenured broadcaster with a single team in pro sports history.
In 1953, at age 25, Scully became the youngest person to broadcast a World Series game, a mark that still stands.
After retiring in 2016, Scully made just a handful of appearances at Dodger Stadium. Mostly, he was content to stay close to home.
A released statement by the Dodgers says Scully "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,”
The Rochester Honkers paid tribute to Scully on social media late Tuesday night.
