Dodgers to honor Vin Scully at pre-game ceremony Friday night

The Los Angeles Dodgers will honor Vin Scully in a ceremony ahead of Friday night’s game against the San Diego Padres.

The Hall of Fame broadcaster died on Tuesday at the age of 94. He called the Games the longest running broadcaster in any pro sport for 67 years in Brooklyn and Los Angeles.

Scully will also be remembered at various locations around Dodger Stadium.

Behind the press box bearing his name, the “I’ll Miss You” banner of his last game at the stadium in 2016 will be displayed. Some of his World Series rings will be on display from 19 August.

In the lobby, a tribute to Scully will be added to the display case.

The Dodgers are wearing a black patch with a microphone and the name ‘VIN’ on their jersey for the rest of the season.

The Scully family is suggesting that donations be made to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation and Catholic Athletes for Christ, two charities they support. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation honors Stephen Siller, a Brooklyn firefighter who died in the World Trade Center collapse on September 11, 2001.
