The Los Angeles Dodgers’ community was gutted this summer when franchise icon and broadcasting trailblazer Vin Scully passed away at the age of 94, less than six years after calling his final game.
Scully followed the Dodgers west from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, but soon became intrinsically aligned with the team’s new home state, ushering California’s burgeoning baseball scene into millions of homes over the decades to come.
Scully’s passing resonated far and wide, but at the same time was difficult to comprehend. The voice of the Dodgers had attained such legendary status that, as silly as it sounds, it was sometimes hard to believe he was a man. He lived a life. He wasn’t a detached narrator spinning storied webs. He went home. He relaxed. He left us in peace and comfort.
Over two months after the fateful day when many fans reckoned with the reality of his passing, Scully’s family home has now reached the market, revealing more about the way the man who influenced so many of our lives actually spent his.
If a group of Dodgers fans would like to unite and purchase these spectacular grounds and turn the land into a living, breathing museum, we wouldn’t say no.
Dodgers fans can buy Vin Scully’s home, which seems incredible
The market price of the mansion is $15 million, and by the looks of the accompanying photography, the price fits.
The size of Scully’s home may be surprising to some, based on the humble nature of the man himself, but it also looks exactly as you’d expect the property of someone who was atop his chosen profession in the 1980s in Los Angeles would. You can easily envision any of the era’s giants striding through those doors and across the compound.
Scully’s memory will live on in the hearts of Dodgers fans forever, and hopefully, his property will as well, remaining relatively untouched into its next generation of inhabitants.
And, again, if anyone wants to discuss that museum idea further and has the capital to make it work, just remember who brought the idea up first.
