Sandra Scully, wife of legendary broadcaster Vin Scully, died of complications from ALS at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the Dodgers announced. Scully had been battling ALS for several years. She was 76.

She had been dealing with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, for several years. ALS is a progressive nervous system disease that causes loss of muscle control.

“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 president and CEO Stan Kasten said in a team 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.”

Born Sandra Hunt on Dec. 27, 1944, she married Vin Scully in November 1973. The couple had one daughter, Catherine, together. She had two children from a previous marriage. He had three children with his first wife, Joan, who died of an accidental overdose in 1972. Sandra, known as Sandi, had 21 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
