When the Dodgers play their first home game of the season, players, coaches and fans will spend some time on Vin Scully Avenue. That has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

Monday afternoon, Scully, Mayor Eric Garcetti and countless others were there, as the street was officially unveiled. Here are a few sights and sounds from the festivities.

It appears as if some of the cloud cover that’s take form over much of the southland parted just a bit for the ceremony. Crazy to see Vin Scully holds that kind of clout.

Our first look at the revamped sign welcoming us to Dodgers Stadium. It would appear Vin is pretty stoked.

Then, our first look at the street sign, via our friends at Pantone 294.

The scene was set as fans waited anxiously, yet patiently, for the announcement. They certainly sounded pretty thrilled for the official announcement.

The Mayor shared his thoughts and hit the nail on the head with his assessment of Vin’s time in Los Angeles.

Then, the moment we were all waiting for: Vin Scully addresses the crowd.

Scully addressed what he’ll miss the most once he steps away. His answer, as per usual, was perfect. 

Then, to finish the ceremony, Scully took time to express his gratitude for those who’ve listened to him through the ages. Thank you, Vin.

Man, we’ll miss this guy.

First and foremost, I love everything Los Angeles. I was born and raised as such. There is video of me, hardly a year old, saying my version of "goooo Dodgers" as my parents cheered alongside me. I could not possibly be more proud to hold this position as we at DodgersNation look forward to enhancing the Dodgers fan experience in any way we possibly can.
