RELEASE: Mayor Garcetti to Present Vin Scully with Key to the City at Tonight's Dodger Game
September 23, 2016
LOS ANGELES — Mayor Eric Garcetti will present the Key to the City of Los Angeles to Vin Scully tonight at a pre-game ceremony celebrating the iconic broadcaster’s 67-year career with the Dodgers. It will mark the first time Mayor Garcetti has presented the honor since he took office in 2013.
“Vin Scully’s legend will live long after he takes off his headset and leaves the booth for the final time in his storied career. For 67 years, Vin has been more than the voice of the Dodgers — he has been the soundtrack to some of the best and most exciting moments of our lives. It is close to impossible to imagine Dodger baseball without his incomparable way with words and the boundless wisdom he has shared with generations of fans around the world. Vin Scully is the very definition of an L.A. icon, and he will forever have the gratitude of the city whose story he helped to write.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
