Vin Scully Retirement Game Tickets Pulled for Additional Promotions

Jon Soo Hoo, Los Angeles Dodgers

The city of Los Angeles has been relishing and wallowing in sorrow in what will be the last season in the broadcasting booth for legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully.

Tickets for the Sept. 24 matchup between the Colorado Rockies and the Los Angeles Dodgers have been taken down from stubhub.com as reported by Darren Rovell. The game is set to be marketed as the Vin Scully Retirement Game.

It is believed the tickets were pulled down because the Dodgers are adding a promotional item that will in turn affect ticket prices.

The latest Dodgers News is that the first 50,000 fans in attendance will receive a limited edition Vin Scully Commemorative Coin, just four days after his bobblehead night.

Three hundred and sixty-five days ago, Scully announced that he will be ending his 67-year broadcasting career to a fan-filled Dodger Stadium.

The 87-year old has been with the Dodgers organization for almost 80 percent of his life, becoming a staple not only for the team itself but for the entire city of Los Angeles.

Twenty-eight year old Joe Davis is slated to be the replacement for Scully. He has some pretty big shoes to fill. No pressure, Joe.
