Mural of Dodgers Icon Vin Scully Defaced in LA

Vin Scully, the iconic voice of the Dodgers for generations of fans, has sorely been missed since he passed away last August. Thankfully fans still are able to hear his voice in some way often whether in a video at Dodger Stadium or a radio hit on AM570 leading up to a ballgame. And folks can spot his image all around the stadium and around Los Angeles through a number of wonderful murals.

Unfortunately, one of those murals in LA was defaced in a disgraceful way.

Twitter user @Dodgers_Blues shared the before and after.

Why people would vandalize a mural of Vin Scully is beyond comprehension, but it’s sad to see the artwork ruined… and with such a dumb piece of “artwork” over the original masterpiece.

Scully called games for the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers from 67 years starting in 1950. He was on the call for more than half a century’s worth of incredible Dodger moments, including the 1955 World Series championship, Kirk Gibson’s walk off homer in game 1 of the 1988 World Series. From Jackie Robinson to Steve Garvey, from Hideo Nomo to Yasiel Puig and everyone in between, Vin was in our homes every summer for 67 years telling us what these legendary Dodgers were doing on a nightly basis.

Vin passed away at the age of 94 last August.
