Vincent Edward Scully, an American sportscaster, has died. Scully, who was born on November 29, 1927 in The Bronx, New York, was best known for his 67 seasons as a game announcer for Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Dodgers, beginning in 1950 and ending in 2016.
Scully’s run calling games was the longest of any broadcaster’s career with a single team in professional sports history.
He was only two years behind Tommy Lasorda in terms of time spent with the Dodgers organization in any capacity.
He retired in 2016, at the age of 88, ending his record-breaking run as the team’s play-by-play announcer.
Scully announced most Dodgers home games (and select road games) on SportsNet LA television and KLAC radio during his final season behind the microphone.
Scully died on August 2, 2022, at the age of 94, in his Los Angeles home.
