Hall-of-Fame broadcaster Vin Scully enjoyed a 67-year career calling games for the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers from 1950-2016, and even though he is almost five years into retirement, he still remains a big part of the organization.

The 93-year-old occasionally returns to Dodger Stadium for ceremonies and has lent his voice to special projects, including the Dodgers’ 2020 World Series DVD.

Scully also created a Twitter account last year to connect with fans and share stories from his days in the booth. The platform is where he revealed some of his favorite Farmer John memories when reports surfaced the company was no longer the supplier of Dodger Dogs.

It’s been a quiet past couple of months for Scully, but he recently provided an update on his health to longtime sports columnist Tom Hoffarth, revealing that all is well both physically and mentally:

As Scully implied, the start of 2021 was difficult for him as his wife, Sandi, passed away after a long battle with ALS. He also mourned the losses of former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda and Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron.

Losing three people in a short amount of time can be difficult for anyone to handle, but it especially is encouraging Scully has been able to bounce back and find new ways to enjoy life.

Scully: Angels’ Ohtani ‘in class by himself’

Having called games for parts of seven decades, Scully has seen just about everything on the baseball diamond. That’s why his praise for L.A. Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani in a recent tweet stood out to many people.

After belting his 32nd home run of the season, Scully argued that Ohtani is in a class of his own, recognizing his elite talent as both a hitter and pitcher.

Ohtani finished the first half with a Major League-leading 33 home runs and earned the No. 1 seed in this year’s Home Run Derby. He also impressed on the mound, going 4-1 with a 3.49 ERA and 87 strikeouts in 67 innings pitched.
