Legendary Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully back at home after hospital stay

Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully is back home after a quick hospital stay last week following a fall. The team released a statement from Scully, 92, on Twitter.

“My sincerest thanks to the LA County Firemen and women who come to the rescue and always seem to be there when we need and to the excellent administration, doctors and nurses of Los Robles Hospital.”

“I am so eternally grateful for their help and selfless service. I’m home and resting comfortably with my wife and we are both eagerly awaiting the Time for Dodger Baseball!”

The sendoff is a phrase announced before Dodgers games. Scully called the team’s games for 67 years beginning in 1950 when the they were located in Brooklyn. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982 and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016, the same year he retired.

Scully fell at his home on Tuesday and joked about the incident, saying he “won’t be doing anymore headfirst sliding, I never liked it.”
