Fans can’t catch Vin Scully calling Dodger games as a broadcaster anymore, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been invested in keeping up with the Boys in Blue lately.
Retirement is something Scully isn’t taking for granted, and he’s already mentioned why he doesn’t want to call a World Series game. You can’t blame him, this new chapter in life that he’s embarked on has, I’m sure, been very pleasant. However, Scully has still been spotted watching his Dodgers this postseason. The only difference is that it’s in the convenience of his home or a suite at Dodger Stadium, as opposed to in the booth.
Cat Scully (Vin’s daughter), tweeted this photo of the family being together while watching the Dodgers celebrate winning their 19th Pennant Thursday evening.

Actor Rob Lowe was fortunate enough to be able to watch Game 2 of the NLDS against the Arizona Diamondbacks with Vin. Lowe is a huge Dodgers fanatic, and truly appreciated the moment he was able to share with the broadcasting legend.

With Game 1 of the World Series starting this Tuesday, you can bet that Chavez Ravine will be packed with Hollywood’s most notable figure’s and baseball’s greatest fan base representing the city of Los Angeles with pride. Everyone knows that the Dodger Hall of Famers (Scully, Sandy Koufax, Tommy Lasorda, etc.) will show up ready to represent as well.
Vin Scully and Sandy Koufax have attended Dodgers postseason home games and I've been told that will not change during the World Series.

It just feels good to know that Vin Scully will be at Dodger Stadium for the first World Series appearance since 1988’s Dodgers team won the championship against the Oakland Athletics, regardless if he’s calling the game or not. The atmosphere will be incredible, and Scully’s spirit, along with the other Dodger faithfuls, will make the anticipation for a win during those home games totally worth it.
I think I speak for fans everywhere when I say that I hope Vin Scully is able to enjoy the game as a fan, something that he has not been able to do for the past 67 years!
