Vin Scully will miss Dodgers’ postseason after medical procedure

Thursday October 8th, 2015

Vin Scully will miss the Los Angeles Dodgers’ postseason after undergoing a medical procedure on Thursday morning, the team announced.

Scully’s doctors advised the broadcaster to rest rather than attend postseason games, the Dodgers said.

Scully announced in August that he would return for the 2016 season, marking his 67th season on the airwaves.

Scully also missed the Dodgers final regular-season series against the San Diego Padres due to a cold.

The 87-year-old was inducted into the broadcaster’s wing of the National Baseball Hall of Fame as the Ford C. Frick Award recipient in 1982.

The Dodgers host the New York Mets for Game 1 of the NLDS five-game series on Friday.
