Mayor Garcetti Presented Vin Scully with Key to the City of Los Angeles
Mayor Eric Garcetti presented the Key to the City of Los Angeles to Vin Scully on September 23rd 2016 at a pre-game ceremony celebrating the iconic broadcaster’s 67-year career with the Dodgers. It marked 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
