Vin Scully, Dodgers broadcaster for 67 years, dies at 94

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Hall of Famer Vin Scully, whose mild tones provided the summer’s soundtrack while entertaining and informing Dodgers fans in Brooklyn and Los Angeles for 67 years, died Tuesday night, the team said. He was 94.

Scully died at his home in the Hidden Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, according to the team who spoke to family members.

As the longest tenure broadcaster with a single team in professional sports history, Scully has seen it all and said it all. Beginning in the 1950s with Pee Wee Reese and Jackie Robinson, he continued into the 1960s with Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax, into the 1970s with Steve Garvey and Don Sutton, and through the 1980s with Orel Hershiser and Fernando Valenzuela. In the 1990s it was Mike Piazza and Hideo Nomo, followed in the 21st century by Clayton Kershaw, Manny Ramirez and Yasiel Puig.

The Dodgers changed players, managers, executives, owners — and even coasts — but Scully and his soothing, insightful style remained a constant for fans.
