The Los Angeles Dodgers will memorialize Vin Scully, who died Tuesday night at the age of 94.
As the team and MLB.com’s Juan Toribio shared, the Dodgers will wear a crest on their jerseys to honor the franchise’s longtime voice.
Arguably the most iconic broadcaster in sports history, Scully called the Dodgers games for 67 years, dating back to their days in Brooklyn, before retiring in 2016.
Often operating from a single booth, he called iconic moments such as Kirk Gibson’s home run against Dennis Eckersley in the 1988 World Series and 13 of MLB’s 23 perfect games.
“We’ve lost an icon,” Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten said in a statement. statement posted on Twitter. “Vin Scully was one of the greatest voices in all of sports. He was a giant man, not only as a broadcaster, but also as a humanitarian. He loved people. He loved life. He loved baseball and the Dodgers. And he loved his family. His voice will always be heard and etched in all of our minds forever.
The Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants put aside their rivalry to hold a minute of silence for Scully ahead of Wednesday’s game at Oracle Park.
Dodger baseball will resume, but Scully will never be forgotten.
