Dodgers say Vin Scully out of hospital

The Los Angeles Dodgers say Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully is out of the hospital after bumping his head.

Dodgers spokesman Josh Rawitch says the 82-year-old Scully was released Friday. Scully went to the hospital on Thursday night as a precaution after he got up from bed too quickly, fell and hit his head.

Rawitch said he spoke with Scully on Thursday night and the announcer told him he's doing well.

Scully is expected to join the team in Glendale, Ariz., at Camelback Ranch this weekend for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Indians.

Scully's 59-year tenure with the Dodgers is the longest of any current sports broadcaster with the same team. He is scheduled to broadcast all of the Dodgers' home games and their road games against National League West and American League West opponents.
