Dodger Stadium New Address: 1000 Vin Scully Avenue

Dodger Stadium New Address: 1000 Vin Scully Avenue

Vin Scully is retiring this year as the Dodgers’ broadcaster and leaving the franchise as arguably the best baseball broadcaster of all time. He has been a part of the franchise for what is to be 67 years this summer and is going to retire at the age of 88 .

“I hope that it will be a street of dreams that leads to Dodger Stadium,” said Scully, the Los Angeles Dodgers’ broadcaster for the past 66 years when speaking about the street that was to be named after him. Vin Scully has been a part of the Dodgers’ franchise since the team played in Brooklyn and moved to Los Angeles. He has been there through the good times and the bad times and hearing him call a game is nothing like you’ve ever heard. He is an important person to not only the franchise but also to fans of the Dodgers and lovers of the game.

Every summer, fans not only look towards their favorite players but also look towards Scully as he is the voice of Dodger Stadium. Hearing his “Hi, everybody, and a very pleasant good afternoon to you, wherever you may be,” is one of the greatest feelings of the summer and kind of makes you forget about the 100 degree heat you’re in and just makes you love the game more.

Based on his importance to the fans and to the Dodgers, on Monday, April 11, the main road to Dodger Stadium, Elysian Park Avenue was renamed to Vin Scully Avenue in his honor as the most legendary broadcaster of all time.

It’s almost time to let go of yet another legend but he will always be remembered and loved by the Dodgers franchise and fans. Scully will officially call his last game on October 2nd against the San Francisco Giants.  Having the  street named after him is only one small way to repay him for all the calls, games, and memories no one will ever forget.
