Sandra Scully, wife of Vin, dies from ALS

January 5th, 2021

Sandra Scully, wife of renowned broadcaster Vin Scully, died of complications from ALS at the UCLA Medical Center on Sunday, the Dodgers announced. She was 76.

Sandra Scully had battled ALS for several years before her passing. She and her husband married in 1973 and helped raise six children, 21 subsequent grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. A widower, Vin Scully married Sandra after his first wife, Joan, died in ‘72.

Sandra Scully was in the booth for her husband’s final broadcast at Dodger Stadium in 2016 and waved to the standing-ovation crowd alongside him. The Scully family has asked that donations be made to the Department of Neuromuscular Disease at UCLA/ALS Research in Sandra Scully’s name.

“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 team 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.”
