The announcement came through a statement released by the Dodgers on their Twitter feed, CBS Sports has reported. The fall, which happened on Tuesday, led to him getting admitted to a hospital where he is reportedly "resting comfortably."

Vin made it clear that he found it "heartwarming" that people were willing to jump at various opportunities to offer help to one another during these uncertain times.

The ease from the rest caused Vin to joke in the team released a statement that he "wouldn't be doing anymore headfirst sliding, I never liked it."

CBS Sports recounted that the 92-year-old retired in 2016 after a successful 67-year run in the broadcast booth with the Dodgers.

The broadcaster, who began his journey as far back as the time that the Dodgers were in Brooklyn, cut back on travel later in his career due to health reasons.

Los Angeles Times further noted that his decades-long career saw him running through 13 National League pennants, six World Series championships, and even involved a move across the country.

Vin also received the Ford C. Frick Award from the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982, which was followed by him getting the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016.

TMZ added that it was Vin who called out the unforgettable moment that Hank Aaron made his 715th home run – that run turned out to be the one that broke Babe Ruth's record.

The iconic broadcaster also called out Bill Buckner's mistake in the 1986 World Series and Kirk Gibson's well-known walk-off home run during Game 1 of the '88 World Series.

Back in March, CBS Sports revealed that the 92-year-old spoke about what he has been up to during the lockdown brought on by the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.

Through his joke that self-isolating wasn't any different from retired life, it soon became evident that Vin was focusing on the good rather than the terrible things happening in the world currently.

Meanwhile, Vin made it clear that he found it "heartwarming" that people were willing to jump at various opportunities to offer help to one another during these uncertain times.
