Vin Scully, the famed Los Angeles Dodgers baseball broadcaster, has died

Vin Scully, the Hall of Fame broadcaster and voice of the Dodgers radio for almost seven decades, has passed away. He was 94.

Scully was a beloved figure in the history and legend of the Dodgers franchise for his smooth voice and story-telling style.

He graduated from Fordham University and helped to create WFUV, a student radio station. In 1950, he started working on the Brooklyn Dodgers broadcasts.

After the 1957 season, he accompanied the team west to Los Angeles.

He was their voice, their laureate, their conscience, capturing their beauty and chronicling it all,” the Dodgers said.

The Dodgers released a statement saying he was their conscience, their laureate. He captured their beauty and documented their glory, from Sandy Koufax to Jackie Robinson,

Kirk Gibson, Clayton Kershaw.” Vin Scully was the heartbeat for the Dodgers and, in many ways, of Los Angeles.

His most notable moments behind the mic included Sandy Koufax’s perfect game against Chicago Cubs on Sept. 9, 1965.
