LOS ANGELES (AP) Driving to Dodger Stadium? From now on, take Vin Scully Avenue.

A road leading to the ballpark is being renamed in honor of the famed announcer, who is set to begin his 67th season with the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles City Council on Friday voted unanimously to change the name of Elysian Park Avenue in tribute to the 88-year-old broadcaster. New Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, star pitcher Clayton Kershaw and several other players were on hand in the council chambers for the vote.

Scully said in a statement that he was greatly honored by the gesture. He added: ''A path to Dodger Stadium is a pathway to my heart.''

Scully has said this is likely his last season behind the microphone for the Dodgers. He started his career with them when the team was based in Brooklyn.
