He had a special recorded message for fans.
“You know friends, so many people have congratulations on a 67-year career in baseball and they’ve wished me a wonderful retirement with my family,” Scully said. “Now, all I can do is tell you what I wish for you.
“May God give you for every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share. For every sigh, a sweet song. And an answer, for each prayer.
“You and I have been friends for a long time, but I know in my heart that I’ve always needed you more than you’ve ever needed me. I’ll miss our time together more than I can say.
“But you know what, there will be a new day and eventually a new year. And when the upcoming winter gives way to spring, rest assured once again it will be time for Dodger baseball. So this is Vin Scully, wishing you a very pleasant good afternoon, wherever you may be.”
Okay, who is cutting onions.
