Broadcaster Vin Scully will be honored with a commemorative black patch by the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team said today. The black patch will have a microphone and “Vin” on the uniforms.
Scully, whose iconic voice long graced Dodger broadcasts in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, died Tuesday at age 94. The Dodgers next home game is Friday and Scully will be honored in the pregame.
Tonight, at the Dodgers game in the Bay Area against the San Francisco Giants, both teams lined up along the baselines as a pregame video tribute to Scully played. The Los Angeles Angels also had a moment of silence at their home game this evening against the Oakland Athletics. Reports filtered in about other teams holding brief moments of silence for Scully.
Hollywood Boulevard crowds gathered at Scully’s star on the Walk of Fame. Many placed flowers on his marker, which is located near Hollywood’s oldest grill, Musso & Frank.
As reported earlier, the Los Angeles City Hall is bathed in blue this evening to honor Scully’s memory.
Scully retired in 2016 after a 67-year career. ‘
