Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully, who retired after the 2016 season, is jumping back into media.
The 92-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster is launching Twitter and Instagram sites on Wednesday (both @TheVinScully). A Facebook account and website (www.dodgersvinscully.com) will come later, USA Today reported.
It will be his first venture into social media.
“I was a fan before I was a broadcaster, and I want to see and hear and engage with people,” he told USA Today.
That’s contact Scully is lacking now. He is confined to his Los Angeles-area home after taking a fall in April that sent him to the hospital for five days.
The newspaper said former agent Dennis Gilbert is helping him in the effort.
“It’s a great way for Vin to reconnect to his fans,” Gilbert said. “It will be a virtual Vin Scully museum.”
The social media sites are set to include snippets from his 67 years of calling Dodgers games, including Henry Aaron’s 715th career home run.
