Longtime Dodgers announcer Vin Scully has announced that he won't be at the Dodgers opening day this year, reports CBS Los Angeles.

Scully is reportedly home with a bad cold.

The 84-year-old has been with the Dodgers for 63 years, having been brought on in the 1950s, when the team was still based in Brooklyn. This is the first time Scully has missed a season opener in 53 years.
