Los Angeles—Councilmember Gil Cedillo introduced a resolution to proclaim September 23rd, 2016 ‘Vin Scully Day’ in the City of Los Angeles. On the eve of the ‘Voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ last game, Cedillo proclaimed today as ‘Vin Scully Day,’ highlighting the legend’s career and thanking him for his service to the world of sports.
“I personally thanked Vin Scully last night for all he’s done not only for baseball fans, but for Angelenos as a whole,” stated Councilmember Cedillo. “Growing up in a humble household, it was not often that I had the opportunity to attend a Dodger game with my dad. Players came and went as they were traded and retired, but the one constant at Dodger Stadium was always Vin Scully. He has made a tremendous impact helping unite Angelenos from every part of the City, if even for one night, as they gather to enjoy ‘the old ball game,” added the Councilmember.
Tonight Vin Scully closes out a successful career of ‘calling the game’ for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Councilmember Cedillo visited Scully last night at Dodger Stadium to deliver a resolution signed by all members of the Los Angeles City Council. To further highlight Vin Scully’s accomplishments, the Councilmember proclaimed September 23rd, 2016 as Vin Scully Day in Los Angeles.
