After 67 years of broadcasting, and being the voice behind the Los Angeles Dodgers, Vin Scully has officially retired. Scully's last home game was Sunday, September 25, 2016. #WinForVin had been the motivation for the team for quite some time, but was officially put into place with a tie game, extra innings, and a walk-off home run thanks to Charlie Culberson. Scully has been with the Dodger organization since the days of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Although he has finished broadcasting his last home game, Scully will call L.A.'s final series of the season against the San Francisco Giants next weekend.

The Miami Marlins placed his number and hat on the pitchers mound just before the game had started. A few days before his passing, he posted an announcement picture of his girlfriend being pregnant.
