Dodger Stadium and Vin Scully are both in Los Angeles, but it can take over an hour to get to the stadium. Vin Scully doesn't just have the aura of a figure for one opponent, it's an aura of this city, an aura of this sport, an aura that calms giants, a soothing voice in the tumult, a voice of an angel in the midst of a tumultuous crowd.

We appreciate Gil Cedillo and city officials bringing this to the forefront, and we look forward to the day when everyone can drive on Vin Scully Avenue when they enter Dodger Stadium.” (Source: bleacherreport.com)
