Spread the love

Vin Scully, the Hall of Fame broadcaster with the soothing voice, may be retired now and confined to his Hidden Hills, California, home with his wife, but he is our national treasure.

And now, to our benefit, Scully has decided to share his commentary with the world, and for the first time will venture into the social media domain with his own Twitter (@TheVinScully), Instagram (@TheVinScully) and a Facebook accounts (Vin Scully). Scully’s Twitter and Instagram accounts officially will launch Wednesday, and Facebook in October.

“I was a fan before I was a broadcaster, and I want to see and hear and engage with people,” Scully told USA TODAY Sports on Friday.

Vin Scully speaks during his induction into the Dodgers' Ring of Honor in 2017.

Scully, 92, has not left his home since being hospitalized for five days in April following a fall in his driveway that left him with fractured ribs, a broken nose and a concussion that now requires a full-time nurse.

Scully has never used social media, but he’s eager to share his legendary calls and material and have his own voice on social media to direct fans to his authentic site. It will be the first time he has a team looking out for his interests in the digital space.
