Your First Look at the Vin Scully Bobblehead

Earlier this year, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully would get his own bobblehead during the 2012 season.

Well, here it is — Scully’s bobblehead night is Aug. 30 when the Dodgers host the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Vin Scully Returns to LA Dodgers Booth

After missing the first five home games of the 2012 season due to a cold, Los Angeles Dodgers Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully returned to the booth Sunday at Dodger Stadium.

The 84-year-old spoke to reporters prior to the Dodgers 5-4 victory and said he first started feeling ill last weekend in San Diego and was nearly diagnosed with pneumonia.

“I couldn’t stop coughing,” said Scully. “That night, as God is my witness, I did not sleep a wink. I didn’t want to keep coughing because when you cough, it makes you hoarse. So I packed the pillows up to try to prevent the coughing, but when I packed the pillows, I couldn’t sleep. I went to the ballpark (on Sunday) and thought, ‘Oh, Lord, if I can somehow get through this one.’ So I did the game, and I went home. I was asleep in the car on the way back, or at least trying to sleep. That was the lowest point.”

Vin Scully Could Return By Saturday

Los Angeles Dodgers Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully could return to the booth as early as Saturday, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The 84-year-old has missed the last three home games due to a bad cold.

Thanks to this nasty weather in Los Angels, it appears he might not miss a fourth game because Friday’s Dodgers-San Diego Padres game could be in jeopardy.

I look forward to hearing all of Scully’s stories from his time at home this week.

Update (4/14: 6:11 PM): The Los Angeles Dodgers tweeted an update on Scully:

Vin Scully to Miss Second Consecutive Game

Vin Scully will miss his second consecutive game with a cold according to a Los Angeles Dodgers team spokesman.

The 84-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster missed only his second home opener in 63 years Tuesday. Charley Steiner and Steve Lyons filled in for Scully on the Prime Ticket broadcast.

It’s not sure when Scully will return and he is considered day-to-day.

Speedy recovery, Vin.

Vin Scully to Miss Dodgers Home Opener

 

A bit of bad news prior to Tuesday’s Los Angeles Dodgers home opener as legendary broadcaster Vin Scully will miss today’s game due to a bad cold, according to Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts.

Feel better, Vin.

Vin Scully No Longer Traveling to Colorado

Get ready to hit the mute button when the Los Angeles Dodgers travel to Denver this season.

Vin Scully is scaling back his work load this season and won’t call road games outside of California and Arizona, the team announced Saturday.

The B-team of Eric Collins and Steve Lyons will call Dodger road games east of Arizona.

Scully, 84, will still announce more than 100 games this season on KCAL 9 and Prime Ticket.

Vin Scully Not Traveling to Spring Training

Whether it’s the beginning of the end or just some extra R&R, Los Angeles Dodgers play-by-play announcer Vin Scully won’t be traveling with the team to Arizona for Spring Training.

Televised games will be handled by the duos of Steve Lyons and Eric Collins and Rick Monday and Charley Steiner from Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz.

In the past, Scully has called the weekend Spring Training games from Camelback Ranch, but instead will remain home in Los Angeles.

He will make his 2012 debut on April 3 when the Dodgers host the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Dodger Stadium.

Get Ready for Vin Scully Bobblehead Night

Dodger fans have something else to look forward to in 2012 besides new owners.

On Aug. 30, you can get your very own Vin Scully bobblehead, the team announced Monday.

Scully’s bobblehead is part of the “Dodger Stadium Greats Bobblehead Series” promotion for the 2012 season.

In the past, Scully has shot down the idea of a bobblehead — hopefully this isn’t a sign that the 84-year-old is considering retirement.

Koufax Trumps Magic in LAT Sports Poll

Former Dodger lefty Sandy Koufax was the runaway winner in the Los Angeles Times‘ countdown of the 20 greatest local sports figures.

The three-time Cy Young Award winner received 57 more first-place votes than No. 3 Vin Scully, and 90 more than No. 2 Magic Johnson.

“He won three Cy Youngs, all unanimously. He pitched four no-hitters, one a perfect game. Was part of three World Series champions.
