Scully hospitalized after hitting his head at home

The Dodgers say that Vin Scully fell getting out of bed at home in Hidden Hills and was admitted Thursday night at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center. The plan was for him to stay overnight as a precaution, then be released Friday. Dodgers' vice president of communications Josh Rawitch said that Scully told him he had gotten out of bed too quickly, then fell and hit his head. Rawitch expects Scully will join the team in Arizona to call Sunday's game with the Cleveland Indians.
