Dodgers News: The Baseball World Pays Tribute to the Late, Great Vin Scully

On Tuesday night, fans received the unfortunate news that legendary Dodgers broadcaster and MLB icon Vin Scully had passed away at 94 year old. The news was devastating not just for Dodgers fans, but baseball fans, sports fans, and everyone in between.

Across the sports landscape, and even beyond the sports landscape, Vin Scully’s millions upon millions of fans paid tribute to the legend.

The official Dodgers Twitter account released a touching tribute to Vin.

They also produced a simple, but fitting tribute to the longtime Dodgers broadcaster who called games for 67 years.

Veteran broadcaster Bob Costas labeled Scully accurately, a true master of his craft.

Dodgers Spanish speaking announcer Jaime Jarrín, who’s announced games for LA for 64 years, also paid his respects.

AM570’s David Vassegh noted how the Dodgers happened to be playing their game on Tuesday night at the stadium where Vin called his final game for LA.

Joe Davis, who took over television play-by-play broadcasting duties after Vin, retired, recounted his first interaction with the man he knew there was no replacing.

Dodgers radio broadcaster Rick Monday, who worked with Vin for years, spoke from his heart about the loss of a man who meant so much to so many.

Dodgers beat writer Bill Plunkett noted the historic importance of Scully’s career.

Magic Johnson, a fellow LA icon, honored the legend.

Former Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti put it best, there isn’t enough space on Twitter fo Vin.

ESPN reporter Jeff Passan highlighted the late broadcaster’s grace on the air.

The fans at Oracle Park, both those in blue, and in orange, paid their respects after the Dodgers-Giants game.

Vin has so many signature calls, but his call of Hank Aaron breaking Babe Ruth's all-time home run record is right up there. 

The Dodgers Nation staff also paid homage to the man who's an integral part of the franchise we have the privilege of covering.

Rest in Peace Vin. You will be missed.

  1. Vin Scully was a relative to every person in the city of Los Angeles. He was “ our favorite uncle”. Today, very appropriately he was traded to another team. What did we get in return. Memories of our favorite uncle.
