Longtime Dodgers announcer Vin Scully paid tribute to the legendary Muhammad Ali during a game broadcast Friday.

Ali died late Friday at the age of 74, as one of the greatest boxers and most iconic, significant athletes of all time.

During the Dodgers’ game against the Braves, Scully relayed the news on-air shortly after learning it.

“He had so much of a reaction from his fans...the impression that he made on so many people,” Scully said. “Muhammad Ali.”
