Over 100 fans came out for the ceremony where Vin Scully received “one more year” chants.

This Vin Scully piece is done just in time for opening day. This one is on a 16×20 inverted wood canvas with a mixed media border made of baseball cards, artificial turf and baseball leather. The microphone is an antique mix from the 1940s. #dodgers #greenalmada #dodgerstadium #goblue #LA #ladodgers #streetart #streetarteverywhere #vinscully #baseball #mlb #majorleaguebaseball #legend #voice #pasadena #art #streetartistry #stencil #mixedmediaart #mixedmedia #microphone #antique #drip #graffiti #graffitiporn #graffitiart #itstimefordodgerbaseball @jon.soohoo
