Vin Scully has been released from the hospital after a fall at his home this week, the Dodgers shared Saturday on Twitter.

The Hall of Fame broadcaster, 92, thanked the first responders, doctors and nurses who treated him at Los Robles Hospital.

“My sincerest thanks to the LA County Firemen and women who come to the rescue and always seem to be there when we need and to the excellent administration, doctors and nurses of Los Robles Hospital,” Scully said in a statement. “I am so eternally grateful for their help and selfless service. I’m home resting comfortably with my wife and we are both eagerly awaiting the Time for Dodger Baseball!”

Scully received the Ford C. Frick Award from the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016.
