Dodgers Mural: Venice Beach Unveils New Vin Scully and Tommy Lasorda Work

It’s been a rough couple of years for Dodgers fans losing their legends. Hall of Famers Tommy Lasorda and Don Sutton both passed away in early 2021, and in 2022 we’ve lost Mike Brito, Maury Wills, and the beloved Vin Scully.

One L.A. artist is doing his part to help us all remember those we’ve lost, as ABC7 reports.

A local artist is hoping his latest mural can inspire the Dodgers to “Win for Vin.”

Gustavo Zermeno Junior – who goes by “G-Z Junior” on Instagram – painted a mural featuring Dodger legends Vin Scully and Tommy Lasorda.

It’s located on Venice Boulevard in Picfair Village. It includes the caption “Win for Vin.”

The mural has Dodger Stadium as the backdrop, with Scully in the left foreground and Lasorda on the right. In the middle, it says, “Let’s Go Dodgers,” with “Win for Vin” on the left-field Dodgervision board.

Scully passed away in August at the age of 94. He spent 67 years as the Voice of the Dodgers, from 1950 through 2016. He was beloved in Los Angeles and throughout the baseball world, universally regarded as the best broadcaster in baseball history. The Dodgers have embraced the slogan “Win for Vin” since his passing.

Lasorda managed the Dodgers for 20+ years (1976-96) and remained a die-hard fan and ambassador right up until his death at the age of 93 in 2021. The fiery skipper was as much celebrity as manager and remained a fan favorite at Dodger Stadium throughout his life.

You can find the mural on Venice Boulevard in Picfair Village.
