LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers will pay tribute to legendary broadcaster Vin Scully tomorrow/Friday, August 5 with a special pre-game ceremony prior to the game against the Padres at 7:10 p.m. Fans are asked to be in their seats by 6:30 p.m. as the team commemorates the Hall of Famer who passed away this week at the age of 94.
Fans will also have a chance to pay their respects at various locations throughout Dodger Stadium. Behind the Vin Scully Press Box, which was named after the Dodger icon in 2001, the “I’ll Miss You” banner from Scully’s last game at Dodger Stadium will be on display. Additionally, some of Vin’s most prized possessions – his World Series rings – will be featured beginning August 19.
In the Dodger Stadium lobby, a new tribute to Scully will be added to the display case which will greet fans as they walk through the front door. Additionally, miniature versions of Scully’s microphone from the Dodgers’ Ring of Honor will be placed on any existing Scully displays at Dodger Stadium. Fans are encouraged to stop for a moment whenever they pass one of these icons to read about the life and legacy of Vin Scully.
Yesterday, the Dodgers debuted a commemorative black patch featuring a microphone and the word “Vin” which the team will wear on their jerseys for the remainder of the season.
