Vin Scully Offers Uplifting Message for Fans After Canceled Opening Day

Iconic broadcaster Vin Scully spent Thursday like the rest of baseball fans: missing what should have been Opening Day for all 30 MLB clubs.

Days after sharing what he’s been up to during the days of self-isolation, Scully took to social media to offer a message to baseball fans like him who have felt a sense of loss and longing as Opening Day passed by without any games played.

“Hi everybody, and a very pleasant good afternoon to you, wherever you may be,” Scully opened his message with, a nod to his typical intro during Dodgers broadcasts. “Excuse me, that’s a form of habit, but ‘wherever you may be,’ that means most of you are home, just as I am, waiting, hopefully, for Opening Day. I trust all is well, I hope you are far away from any sickness, and I miss you.”

Scully, 92, called Dodgers games on the radio and television for 67 seasons, from 1950 to 2016. He recalled past national adversities he’s witnessed throughout his lifetime, offering encouragement that this current hardship will pass as well.
