News of legendary broadcaster Vin Scully’s death sent shockwaves across Southern California and the sports world as the news first spread via the Dodgers’ social media accounts and an announcement during the broadcast of the Dodgers’ game against the Giants at Oracle Park in San Francisco.

Scully served as the voice of the Dodgers for 67 seasons. Over the years, he established a bond with Dodgers fans young and old and became an icon throughout Southern California and beyond.
