Dodgers Honor Vin Scully Before Game vs. Padres

Before their matchup at Dodger Stadium against the Padres on Friday, the Dodgers honored legendary announcer Vin Scully, who died on Wednesday at the age of 94.

Los Angeles showed an almost eight-minute video that chronicled Scully’s Dodger broadcasting career. They also showed a three-and-a-half minute montage with pictures of Scully throughout his career.

The team also put a circular blue patch on the mound with “Vin” written on it, and Dodgers broadcasters Joe Davis and Orel Hershiser uncovered a sign below the broadcast booth that read “Vin - We’ll miss you!” 

Finally, the team held a moment of silence, and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said a few words, before the game began.
