Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti said Sunday that he wanted to rename a street near Dodger Stadium after Vin Scully, but the legendary announcer issued a statement via the team saying he’s not interested in the honor:
“The mayor of Los Angeles has a great deal more important things to do than name a street after me. And if he is considering the idea, better the street should be named after Walter or Peter O’Malley than myself.”
All of which just makes me love Scully even more.
(Seriously though, would it be super crazy of me to suggest that the Dodgers rename the whole ballpark after Scully at some point?)
