Vin Scully, the renowned Los Angeles Dodgers telecaster, kicks the bucket at 94

LOS ANGELES — If there's one name inseparable from the Dodgers, it's anything but a player, supervisor or any group official. It's Vin Scully.

For in excess of 50 years, there wasn't a Dodgers game that didn't start this way for fans at home or the arena: "It's Time For Dodger Baseball!"

Vin Scully started reporting games on the radio and afterward on TV when the Dodgers actually played in Brooklyn.

He invested more energy with one group than some other host in sports history, before he resigned after the 2016 season.

Vin Scully's demise was reported by the Dodgers in a tweet. He was 94.

It wasn't simply life span that made Scully incredible. It wasn't his baseball information — which was tremendous.

It was his particular voice...poetic and philosophical asides

what's more, his ability for making a special interaction with audience members

It was there all along. One vital time in 1957, catcher Joe Pignatano was coming up for his first at-bat as a Brooklyn Dodger.
