Directions to Dodger Stadium: Take Vin Scully Avenue
LOS ANGELES (AP) On their way to Dodger Stadium for the team's home opener, fans can now take Vin Scully Avenue into the main gate.
The city of Los Angeles renamed a section of roadway from Sunset Boulevard to Stadium Way in honor of the 88-year-old Hall of Fame announcer Monday.
Signs replacing the old name of Elysian Avenue were already posted when Scully appeared in front of a few hundred fans to accept the honor. He drew cheers when opening with his familiar greeting of ''Hi everybody, and a very pleasant good afternoon to all of you.''
Scully is set to broadcast the final home opener of his 67-year career on Tuesday, when the Dodgers host the Arizona Diamondbacks. He plans to retire at season's end after having called games since the team's early days in Brooklyn.
