Longtime Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully died on Tuesday, the team announced.
He was 94.
Scully spent 67 years as the voice of the Dodgers both in Brooklyn and in Los Angeles, and is one of the sport’s top voices. Scully started working for the Dodgers in 1950, and remained there until he retired in 2016. He was the youngest to ever call a World Series at 25, and was around for plenty of iconic moments in baseball history.
Fans far and wide took to social media to honor Scully once the news broke on Tuesday night.
There will never be another Vin Scully. You will be forever missed. 🎙💙 pic.twitter.com/WyTmXsati5

Vin Scully was a storyteller, and nobody ever told the story of baseball better. He called games with such elegance and grace. He spoke only when necessary, allowing the broadcast to breathe when it demanded. He made baseball a more beautiful game. RIP. https://t.co/cmQ2nGJW3Y

You can't tell the story of baseball without Vin Scully. And nobody ever told the story of baseball better than Vin Scully.

I can’t quite explain it, but Vin Scully made baseball history feel real. Like, he was both of an earlier era and someone you could listen to every night. He was a through line.

When I think of what baseball sounds like, it is Vin Scully. 1 of the joys of the baseball package coming along was I could come home from an East Coast game, turn on the Dodgers and hear Scully at his peak, just as my dad had a half century earlier. #TheBest #RIP https://t.co/KHnDyuKK4Y

how the hell do you tell the story of a wolf attacking a boy during an at bat calmly, colorfully and without missing a pitch? Vin Scully was an absolute artist pic.twitter.com/aLjUYv7mme

RIP Vin Scully. Here’s an incredible story he told on the air during a national Pirates-Cubs game back in 1988. pic.twitter.com/9NvHXbC7p2
