The Los Angeles Dodgers decided to pay tribute to legendary broadcaster Vin Scully by wearing a commemorative black patch featuring a microphone and ‘Vin’ on their unforms. His illustrious 67-year-career in Brooklyn and Los Angeles made him the longest tenured broadcaster with a single team in sports history. Vin passed away on Tuesday aged 94.

The Yankees honored Scully before their Wednesday’s game at Yankee Stadium with a moment of silence that was followed by cheers from the crowd. Scully is regarded as one of the best broadcaster in the history of North American professional sports. Born in the Bronx, he began calling Dodgers games as a 22-year-old, when they were based in Brooklyn.

Ahead of the Dodgers game in the Bay Area against the San Francisco Giants, both the teams also lined up along the baseline to remember Scully. The Los Angeles Angels also had a moment of silence at their home game against the Oakland Athletics.

Reports have also suggested that other teams are also holding a brief moment of silence for Scully. Even Hollywood Boulevard crowd gathered at Scully’s star on the Walk of Fame. Many visitors placed flowers on his maker, which is located near Hollywood’s oldest grill – Muso & Frank. Reports also claimed that Los Angeles City Hall was bathed in blue to honor Scully’s memory.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone was quoted saying that Vin Scully was the best in the business and painted the best picture of the game. “I grew up falling asleep at night (in Philadelphia) listening to Harry Kalas and Richie Ashburn paint the picture for me. And I think nobody has the painted that picture better than Vin Scully in baseball. He is obviously a giant in all sports broadcasting,” he quoted.
