Baseball lost its voice, and broadcasters lost their professor.

Vin Scully, the orator behind so many indelible moments in the history of professional baseball passed away Tuesday, he was 94.  According to reports, the Hall of Famer passed at his home in the Hidden Hills section of Los Angeles. No cause of death was provided.

For 67 years Scully was the voice of Dodgers baseball, going all the way back to the franchise’s heyday in Brooklyn. Scully was aboard when the Dodgers won their first ever World Series in 1955 against their then-cross town rivals the New York Yankees.  That was just the beginning of Scully lending his voice to so many incredible World Series’, eras and important moments in baseball history.

He had the call of Hank Aaron’s record-setting home run, painting not only the picture of the player and his record, but of the man, the moment, and the importance of it all in the scope of American society. He was on the call when the Mets’ Mookie Wilson hit a slow grounder that got past the first base bag and under the outstretched glove of first baseman Bill Buckner. The Mets won Game 6 of the 1986 World Series and would go on to win Game 7 as well.

Scully was also there for Kirk Gibson’s iconic homer against the Oakland A’s in the 1988 World Series, the last Dodgers title until the franchise won it all again in 2020.

“He was the best there ever was,” Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw said after the Dodgers’ game Tuesday night in San Francisco. “Just when you think about the Dodgers, there’s a lot of history here and a lot of people that have come through. It’s just a storied franchise all the way around. But it almost starts with Vin, honestly. Just such a special man. I’m grateful and thankful I got to know him as well as I did.”

The eulogies and remembrances have been pouring in all night.
