The Vin Scully Farewell Tour Comes To Him

Scully, 88, is not only greeted by umpires on the field. A procession of players, managers, coaches and umpires has made the trek — in uniform — up the ballpark elevator or escalators and into the Vin Scully Press Box to say goodbye to the man himself.

“He’s the only guy who has the farewell tour come to him,” Steiner said. “To see kids one-third of his age go up there wide-eyed and blown away — I think he’s every bit as blown away that they come up and show that respect.”
