President and CEO of the Dodgers Stan Kasten stated, “We have lost an icon. “Vin Scully, the voice of the Dodgers, was among the best in all of the sports. Not only as a broadcaster but also as a humanitarian, he was a giant of a man. He was a kind man. He cherished life. He adored the Dodgers and baseball. And he cherished his family. His voice will live on in all of our ears and minds forever.
According to a source, “We had this big old radio, and I would crawl underneath it, and the speakers would be directly over my head,” he told The Times in 1994. “Something would happen, and the announcer would get excited. The crowd would roar, the sound would come out of that speaker like water out of a showerhead, and it seemed to wash down on me.”
The red-haired boy spent summer days playing stickball in the streets and collecting empty soda bottles, returning them for refunds so that he could buy a 55-cent ticket to the Polo Grounds. His favorite team was the New York Giants, a hated rival of the Brooklyn Dodgers, the team with which he would later become synonymous.
Scully attended Fordham University and played two seasons in center field for the baseball team. His education was interrupted by a tour of duty in the Navy that ran through 1945, after which his love for the game took a different form.
