Vin Scully Is An Unbelievably Revered Figure In The City Of Los Angeles (Photo)

Wednesday night, prior to the Astros unbelievably dramatic Game 2 victory over the Dodgers, iconic LA announcer Vin Scully appeared in front of the Dodger Stadium sellout crowd, during a first pitch ceremony that also featured Dodger greats Fernando Valenzuela and Steve Yeager. The scene was simply incredible (video below).

The 89-year-old Scully served as the Brooklyn/LA broadcaster for 67 seasons. Widely believed to be the greatest baseball play-by-play man in history, Scully finally called it a career after the 2016 season.

The New York City native’s remarkable résumé includes hall of fame induction in 1982 and receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom honor last year.

In Los Angeles, Scully owns three very unique and well-deserved accolades, among the many gestures of appreciation garnered from the people of Southern California. Scully has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the press box at Dodger Stadium is named after him and the street that leads into the main entrance to the stadium is also named in his honor.

Above is a look at the “Welcome to Dodger Stadium” sign, which also includes the address “1000 Vin Scully Avenue.” This shot was gathered a few hours before Scully’s Game 2 spectacle.

Here’s to Vin Scully! Simply stated, there will never be another one quite like him.
