Legendary Dodgers Broadcaster Vin Scully Hospitalized

UPDATE (Friday morning): Vin is back home from the hospital and resting comfortably.

UPDATE: Tony Jackson is reporting that Vin’s ok, that the hospitalization was just a precaution and that he will leave the hospital tomorrow (Friday) and still come to Camelback Ranch to broadcast Sunday’s game.

Josh Rawitch, the Dodgers’ vice president for communications, spoke with Scully late Thursday. Rawitch said in an e-mail to reporters that Scully told him he had simply gotten out of bed too quickly, resulting in his falling and bumping his head. For precautionary reasons, Scully, 82, was taken to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center.

I think I speak for all Dodgers fans when I say…phew!  It’s times like this that make you appreciate every game you have with a talent like Vin Scully.

From the KNBC Web site:

Famed L.A. Dodger announcer Vin Scully was hospitalized Thursday night due to an undisclosed ailment, a family representative has said. 

He was transported from his home in Hidden Hills toWest Hills Hospital and Medical Center.

The family spokeswoman said “he’s going to be okay.”  No other details were given.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Vin!  We’ll of course post all updates as they become available.
