Legendary Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully fell at his home Tuesday afternoon, but he’s resting comfortably at a hospital, the team said Thursday.

The team tweeted the update Thursday morning with a statement from the 92-year-old Scully: “I won’t be doing anymore headfirst sliding, I never liked it.”

Details about the extent of his injuries were not immediately available.

Scully retired after the 2016 season after 67 years calling Dodgers games in Los Angeles and when the franchise was in Brooklyn. His voice became a soundtrack of summer for generations of fans.

The Hall of Famer's career was the longest tenure of any broadcaster with a single pro sports team. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982.

In 2016, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
