Los Angeles, CA – Long time Los Angeles Dodger announcer Vin Scully will be missing the 2015 playoff run for the team. The Dodgers announced today that Scully will miss the postseason after undergoing a medical procedure released in a statement.
The team added that he is resting comfortably following the procedure. The famed announcer just finished his 66th season with the franchise in the press box and announced in August that he will return in 2016 for his 67th season as the voice of the Dodgers.
Vin Scully will turn 88 next month.Â “I am the most ordinary man you’ve ever met,” he said. “I was given an extraordinary opportunity and God has blessed me for doing it all these years,” said Scully in an interview about his career.
The Dodgers start their road to the World Series tomorrow as they play the New York Mets at Dodger Stadium in the opening game of the National League Divison Series at 6:30pm.
