Vin Scully's wife of 47 years, Sandra Scully, has died of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced Monday. She was 76.
Vin Scully was the Dodgers broadcaster for 67 seasons, predating the team's arrival in Los Angeles.
"We are saddened to learn of the passing of Sandi Scully, the loving wife of Vin and a dear member of the Dodger family," Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten said in a statement. "Sandi was Vin's biggest fan and was always there in loving support of him at Dodger Stadium until she began her battle with ALS. She was truly Vin's and the Scully family's rock, and she will be dearly missed."
The couple married in 1973 and had one daughter, Catherine, although both had children from previous marriages. Vin Scully's first wife, Joan, died in 1972 from an accidental overdose, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Vin Scully turned 93 in November. He retired after the 2016 season.
