Vin Scully returns home after brief hospitalization due to fall at home

Scully, 92, suffered unspecified injuries in a fall at home Tuesday and was hospitalized until being released Saturday. He is “resting comfortably” at home, according to a statement released by the Dodgers.

LOS ANGELES — Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully was released from the hospital and is “resting comfortably” at home, according to the Dodgers.

Scully suffered unspecified injuries when he fell at home Tuesday afternoon. He was taken to Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks and thanked the first-responders and health-care workers who took care of him in a statement released by the Dodgers.

“My sincerest thanks to the LA County firemen and women who come to the rescue and always seem to be there when we need and to the excellent administration, doctors and nurses of Los Robles Hospital,” the 92-year-old Scully said in the statement. “I am so eternally grateful for their help and selfless service. I’m home resting comfortably with my wife and we are both eagerly awaiting the ‘Time for Dodger Baseball!’”

After 67 years broadcasting Dodgers games, Scully retired following the 2016 season and has made only occasional public appearances since then. He recently narrated a video released by the Dodgers that advised fans to follow stay-at-home restrictions – “just as I am,” he said, “waiting, hopefully, for Opening Day.”
