The Dodgers put out the word that 84-year-old broadcaster has a cold and isn't at this afternoon's first home game of the season. He has missed only one other home opener in his 63 seasons, in 1977 when he had a commitment to broadcast the Masters golf tournament, the Dodgers said. Scully was resting at home and also would likely miss Wednesday’s game, the team said. Charley Steiner and Steve Lyons filled in on TV for today's game. Rick Monday did radio — they are on AM 570 this year.
