This past April, the Los Angeles Dodgers confirmed a report that retired Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully was hospitalized after falling at his home.

The 92-year-old has since made a full recovery and detailed some of the injuries he sustained. Among them was a broken nose, broken ribs and concussion after slipping at the end of his driveway while getting the mail.

Scully deemed the experience a valuable one and now takes extra precautions when walking around his house, via Beth Harris of the Associated Press:

Scully took a bad fall in April at the end of his driveway while retrieving the mail, breaking his nose and ribs and suffering a concession. “It was a learning experience,” he said. “I hold on to my walker.”

Now four years into retirement, it is certainly encouraging to hear that Scully has recovered from his fall. He called Dodgers games for 67 seasons, joining the team on their move from Brooklyn to Los Angeles.

Scully witnessed 13 National League pennants with the organization and six World Series titles. He received the Ford C. Frick Award from the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016.

The Dodgers inducted Scully into the Dodger Stadium Ring of Honor in May 2017. He has made a handful of cameos this season, narrating multiple video packages, including one that provided an update on the renovations at Dodger Stadium.

Scully narrates tribute for Kobe, Gianna Bryant

Scully was most recently heard from this past Sunday at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers honored the late Kobe and Gianna Bryant prior to their contest against the Colorado Rockies.

On what would have been Kobe’s 42nd birthday, Scully narrated a video package that highlighted some of his most notable accomplishments on and off-the-court.
