Vin Scully hospitalized

    Fell and hit his head after getting out of bed too quickly. Should be OK, but still ... A fall at home led to the death of another L.A. icon, Chick Hearn.

    Scully is entering his 61st season with the club and, to me, is the greatest announcer of all time.

    Hope he recovers quickly and is back behind the mic very soon.

    If not the greatest, he is right there with Suzyn Waldman.

    He's worth the XM subscription every summer. I always try to catch a few innings when possible. My favorite snippet last year was when he described a head-first slide into second as a "belly-whopper"

    The best baseball anouncer ever and a great person as well.
    Get well soon, Vin

    So right about the similarity to Chick. He fell at a gas station a few months before the fall that killed him.

    Hope Vin is well soon. Nothing like a hot summer day with Vin while enjoying some Farmer John Sausage

    Met Vin about 20 years ago and he's so nice and gracious. Not a Dodgers fan, but I will stop to listen to him on a game anytime.

    yes sir- worth the price of XM to catch Vin on a sunny summer afternoon.

    Have to admit also like to catch Uke.
