LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dodgers Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully was admitted to a hospital Thursday night after he got up from bed too quickly, fell and bumped his head.

Scully, 82, was taken from his Hidden Hills home to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center as a precaution and would stay overnight for observation, Dodgers spokesman Josh Rawitch said.

Rawitch said he spoke with Scully on Thursday night and the announcer told him he's doing well.

Scully is expected to join the team in Glendale, Ariz., at Camelback Ranch this weekend for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Indians.

Scully's 59-year tenure with the Dodgers is the longest of any current sports broadcaster with the same team. He is scheduled to broadcast all of the Dodgers' home games and their road games against National League West and American League West opponents.
