Vin Scully won’t be at Dodger Stadium to broadcast the Dodgers’ home opener this afternoon, as the team announced that he’ll stay at home to rest due to “a bad cold.”
Any kind of sickness is obviously worrisome for an 84-year-old, so hopefully the beloved Scully will be back behind the microphone very soon and can resume being baseball’s best announcer.
I’m selfishly hoping for a speedy recovery, as I regularly tune into the Dodgers’ late-night games solely because listening to Scully is so amazing. I can’t even imagine how weird it’ll feel for Dodgers fans to watch the home opener without his soothing voice serving as the soundtrack.
At least Clayton Kershaw is feeling good enough after his bout with the flu to pitch against the Pirates.
