Legendary Dodgers' broadcaster Vin Scully passed away Tuesday at the age of 94, the team announced this evening:

Scully was the broadcaster for the Dodgers from 1950-2016, starting in Brooklyn before spending the overwhelming majority of his career in Los Angeles.

He won the Ford C. Frick Award in 1982, earning him an induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. He's considered by many to be the greatest announcer in MLB history.

Scully was the rare broadcaster that transcends what market he or she is in and was known even by those who aren't huge sports fans. To that end, former president Barack Obama award him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in November of 2016.

Scully was a key figure in the Dodgers-Giants rivalry that dated back to the franchises' time on the East Coast. He will be sorely missed by baseball fans in California and around the world.
