RIP Vin Scully (1927–2022)

I'm watching the game, and the Dodger broadcasters announced about 20 or so minutes ago that broadcasting legend Vin Scully died today. (Scully's death was announced by the Dodgers in the tweet to which I just linked, along with other simultaneous social-media posts.) Vin was the greatest broadcaster who ever lived. I listened to Vin broadcast literally thousands of games across four decades. Vin was one of the key voices of my childhood (and much of my adulthood). For so long, Vin was not only the voice of the Dodgers, but was also (along with Tommy Lasorda) the pulse of the Dodgers.

Here is Vin's Wikipedia page.

Update: ESPN has now posted an article about Vin Scully's death.
