The team reported Thursday that the 92-year-old Scully fell in his home Tuesday afternoon.

“He is hospitalized and is resting comfortably,” the Dodgers tweeted.

Scully took advantage of the incident to inject some of his patented humor.

“I won’t be doing anymore headfirst sliding, I never liked it,” he said through the team.

Scully was the legendary voice of the Dodger for 67 years. He retired in 2016.

    BREAKING: Vin Scully trips over the Houston Astros 2017 World Series Trophy in a vain attempt to return the trophy back to the Major League Baseball Headquarters in New York City, New York. The kick, a long range kicking attempt was dropped by placeholder A.J. Hinch, who was unavailable for comment. Details are sketchy at the moment. Both Major League Baseball and the National Football League will hold press conferences at the top of the hour.
