Los Angeles Dodgers vs Arizona Diamondbacks

By Jon Weisman

Vin Scully underwent a recommended medical procedure this morning and is resting comfortably, the Dodgers have announced.

On the advice of his doctors, Scully will miss the Dodgers’ postseason games to rest up. He said he’s looking forward to returning to the Dodgers for the 2016 season, his 67th with the Dodgers.

Everyone in the Dodger organization wishes Scully the speediest of recoveries. Can’t wait to see him back in action next year!

Traveling through time with Vin Scully


  1. Vin, Wishing you a speedy recovery!!!

  2. God bless you Vin,can’t wait till next years Dodger games to start so I can hear your amazing voice! Get well soon!!

  3. It won’t be the same without you!! LA LOVES VIN!!!! #winitforVin

    Well I met him in SPROUTS in Westlake Village where he was shopping for fruit and I walked up to him to shake his hand and…..

    He was Vinnie …Nice as anything…great man! Get Well Soon Vin!

  5. We love you, Vin. Your voice will be missed for the playoffs. #getwellsoonVIN

  6. God bless you Vinnie and wishing you a speedy recovery. You are the absolute best! Looking forward to 2016 season.

  7. I think if The Vin’s procedure wasn’t dental, we should run a line into the house and let him do the game from his easy chair! We hope he’s well and soon!

  8. Absolutely the best. Listening and watching him since 1962. Rest well, and Godspeed!

  9. Get well soon Vin, and enjoy the playoffs from your recliner

  10. I lived in southern Cal during the Vin and Jerry days. Went to sleep as a young lad listening to them call the game at night. Lots of good memories. Miss getting to hear him.

  11. My Fondest memories as a kid are Summer evenings with BBQ, Swimming pool and Vinny on the Radio… Now I do the same thing with my Grandkids 55 years later! Get well soon!

  12. Feel better Vinnie – we need you back in the Spring!

  13. Best of luck, Vinnie. Hope for a speedy recovery. You paint such a lovely picture. Been with ya since fifty-eight.

  14. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to LA’s Living Legend, and the greatest broadcaster in sports history. Here’s hoping the procedure was inconsequential, your infirmity brief and painless.

  15. Love you Vin! Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Enjoy your off season. Looking forward to next season. What would we all do without you?

  16. Get well soon Mr. Vin Scully have listened to you call games since 1958, You are the hero of the Dodgers.

  17. We will miss you announcing the games, but, get to feeling better, and see you next year :)

  18. Vinny will be greatly missed during the postseason. I can’t imagine following The Dodgers the day he decides to hang up his microphone!

  19. Sending healing wishes to Vin. Missing your voice and commentary. Looking forward to 2016.

  20. When I was a kid I asked for a transitor radio as a gift every Christmas and birthday – just so I could try and listen to Vin and the Dodgers. Some days I still can’t believe I can now watch and listen to him on my phone. Never imagined that as a kid! Anyway, I too send my best regards and hopes for a speedy and full recovery for Vin.

  21. Vin for last 50 years you’ve been apart of every memory for me with the Dodgers. Get well soon!!

  22. Vinny may you recover quickly. You do not owe any of us fans anything. Good health and the health of our loved ones is always more important than baseball. Cheers and God bless.

  23. The Dodgers are not the DODGERS without the best ever announcer in all of baseball. Get well Vinny. Come on Dodgers lets win it all for Vinny

  24. We will miss you Vinny but will hear your voice in our hearts during the games. As we all know you will be calling them from home. Rest up and be ready to celebrate the successful postseason! See you in 2016. We love you!

  25. You may miss the postseason, but we’ll be missing YOU!

  26. Speedy recovery Vin! You are and always will be the heart and soul of this team!
    Dodgers 2015!

  27. Just knowing you will be able to watch the games with your family makes me smile. I will hear your voice no matter where you are. Beyond any mere words…you are so loved.

  28. Seems there’s nothing too unique about growing up in Southern California and needing to hear Vin to get to sleep at night – remember putting the transistor radio under the pillow and always needing a new battery. 55 years later and still listening… Get well, Vin, we’ll miss you in the post-season and can’t wait to hear your velvety voice and prose next year!

  29. I can only listen to the 3 innings that Vin does on the radio because I can’t see the games. Those 3 innings are better than seeing a whole game with different broadcasters on TV. Get well Vin we’ll really miss ya.
