Last night, we lost arguably one of the greatest sports broadcasters the world has ever seen in Vin Scully.

The longtime Hall of Fame announcer for the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers passed away at the age of 94.

According to ESPN, Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten shared in a statement:

“We have lost an icon. Vin Scully was one of the greatest voices in all of sports. He was a giant of a man, not only as a broadcaster, but as a humanitarian. He loved people. He loved life. He loved baseball and the Dodgers. And he loved his family.

His voice will always be heard and etched in all of our minds forever. I know he was looking forward to joining the love of his life, Sandi. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this very difficult time. Vin will be truly missed.”

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred also shared a heartfelt statement:

“Today we mourn the loss of a legend in our game. Vin was an extraordinary man whose gift for broadcasting brought joy to generations of Dodger fans.

In addition, his voice played a memorable role in some of the greatest moments in the history of our sport. I am proud that Vin was synonymous with Baseball because he embodied the very best of our National Pastime. As great as he was as a broadcaster, he was equally great as a person.

On behalf of Major League Baseball, I extend my deepest condolences to Vin’s family, friends, Dodger fans and his admirers everywhere.”

Scully left a mark as a full-time broadcaster for 67 years, and his legacy will live on forever, as he’s arguably the most recognizable voice in sports history.

With that being said, Scully’s passing has drawn a ton of reactions and heartfelt messages from people around the globe, while also reliving some of his best moments:
