“We have lost the icon. Vin Scully of the Dodgers was one of the greatest voices in all of sports. He was a giant not only as a TV presenter, but also as a humanist. He loved people. He loved life. He loved baseball and the Dodgers. And he loved his family. His voice will always be heard and imprinted in our minds forever. I know he was looking forward to meeting the love of his life, Sandy. Our thoughts and prayers to his family during this very difficult time. Vin will be truly missed.”
