Sandra Scully — the wife of iconic Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully — died on Sunday after a battle with ALS.

She was 76 years old.

The Dodgers announced the news on Monday.

“We are saddened to learn of the passing of Sandi Scully, the loving wife of Vin and a dear member of the Dodger family,” Dodgers CEO Stan Kasten wrote in a statement. “Sandi was Vin’s biggest fan and was always there in loving support of him at Dodger Stadium until she began her battle with ALS. She was truly Vin’s and the Scully family’s rock, and she will be dearly missed.”

Sandra was a regular at Dodgers Stadium

Sandra and Vin were married in 1973. Sandra had six children, 21 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren with Vin and from a previous marriage. She was battling ALS — also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease — for several years, according to the Dodgers. ALS is a neuromuscular disease that affects the brain and spinal cord and causes loss of muscle control.

Sandra was frequently seen with her husband at Dodgers Stadium during his 67-year run as the team’s play-by-play announcer.
