Bruised physically and emotionally following a fall at his home Thursday, Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully showed he still has his sense of humor.
The 82-year-old Hall of Famer arrived in the desert Sunday to call his first game of the spring.
Scully said he was never in a life-threatening situation. Feeling the effects of a cold, he was walking across a marble floor to his bathroom when he blacked out.
Scully received five staples in the back of his head at the hospital. He also had a large bruise on the back of his right arm and some soreness in his back.
Sunday's Dodgers game against the Cleveland Indians was the first of two Scully will broadcast this spring as he enters his 61st season with the club.
