Dodgers: Vin Scully Post His First Message to Fans on Social Media



Vin Scully finally made the jump into social media this week. The legendary Dodgers’ broadcaster got onto all of the major sites to reconnect with fans and hopefully spark up meaningful conversations. Today, he posted his first message to those fans that he misses so dearly.

Vin talks about making his social media debut and the welcome that he got from fans. He also said that he hoped to talk about baseball memories and to stay away from ‘controversial’ conversations. From what it sounds like, the Dodgers’ broadcaster is excited to get back into the baseball loop. 

In an interview with Jim Hill, Vin explained why he wanted to get into social media at 92-years-old. In his mind, he wanted to make up for all of the good years that Dodgers fans gave him. 

I can’t believe that I’ve had such a good life. And that’s a terrible obligation to try and make up for it, so I’m trying the best I can. And in the course of doing the social media, I will try to tell people how grateful I am…my life has bubbled over so much because of the good feelings I’ve received. 

Whatever the reason he’s here, we’re just so happy to get to hear from Vin again. Hopefully, we’ll get to hear from him for many more years as Dodgers fans. 

Scully was the Dodges broadcaster for 67 years starting in 1950 alongside Red Barber and Connie Desmond. He retired following the 2016 season but appears on occasion for the team still. He just narrated a video honoring the late Kobe Bryant on August 24th.

  1. I was so sad when Vin stopped play by play for the Dodgers I was born in 54 and my parents had every game on our home stereo with Vin and Jerry and I continued it till he retired. Summer will never be the same it will be great to hear him again even for just a few minutes.

  2. The Dodgers should start Like and allow him to find his grove over the last 22 games this would allow Chris to be used as our first utility player and even to play second when lefties are brought in. Dodgers should have traded Gavin last year and this year they should have seen what they might have gotten for him since we were looking for future prospects, he thinks he deserves the position and doesn’t have to earn it!!!

  3. I hope everything goes well with Vinny on social media. I was born in 47 and as I got older I would listen to the Dodgers on radio and then watch the Dodgers in person in 1958 when they came to LA. I’ve been to several games since but not in a long time. I’m in my 70’s and can’t move around too well. But I do watch the Dodgers on TV, but sadly no Vinny to hear. 🙁

  4. I grew up in 50s/60s North Carolina. I became a Dodgers fan because all my buddies were insufferable Yankees fans.

    Vin kept me with Dodgers even after the team’s departure to L.A. from Brooklyn.

    Thanks, Vin, it wasn’t easy being an N.C. fan from afar!
