In a career so improbable, the impossible has happened: We have to bid Vin Scully farewell

impossible

Our Dodger Insider tribute to Vin Scully hits the Dodger Stadium stands tonight — distributed free at the autogates (one per vehicle) and at Fan Services booths (for those who arrive via alternate transportation) through September 24, and then to every fan with the special commemorative cover on Fan Appreciation Day, September 25.

To lead off our salute to the beloved broadcaster during his final homestand with the Dodgers (sigh), here’s my piece trying to capture what he has meant to his listeners for the past 67 seasons — and what happens for us now, as we confront the reality of his upcoming departure.

Jon, only you could have written it. Beautiful.

Is there any way to buy a copy of this if you live out of state? I have listened to Vin my whole life and would love to have this to remember and honor him.

Thank you, Jon. Your telling of the story of our relationship with Vin rivals the skill of the Great Man himself! Like Julie, I live too far away to be able to attend but would love to purchase a copy of the Special Commemorative Edition.

I’m taking my 9 year old to his first Dodger Stadium game (we live in San Diego) on Sunday. Sadly, it will be Vin’s last at Chavez Ravine. Can’t wait to get the commemorative issue on Sunday!
