LOS ANGELES — Dodgers manager Dave Roberts ended a pregame ceremony honoring broadcaster Vin Scully by running the crowd through a chorus of Scully’s famous line, “It’s time for Dodgers baseball.”

Scully, who called Dodgers games for 67 years and retired in 2016, died on Tuesday at age 94.

Behind a beautiful blue sky, there was a moment of silence at Dodger Stadium on Friday for the lovable Scully, followed by a video narrated by Dodgers broadcaster Charley Steiner and accompanied by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole’s memorable version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Scully once described a beautiful night as “a cotton candy sky with a canopy of blue.” He was the soundtrack of baseball games for generations of Dodgers fans and a masterful storyteller.

“He’s the connection, the fabric from the fans to the organization,” Roberts told the crowd. “Players change; teams are different. But he was the one constant. And so every night, when you turn on the game, hearing his voice was consistent. And he was the conduit for many to share stories, paint pictures and call a ballgame.”

Roberts said Scully wouldn’t have liked all the attention.

“Vin, as he’s looking down on us right now, well, he hated the spotlight on him,” Roberts said. “Well, this is going to be a very uncomfortable moment right now but he deserves it. Vin was a man of character and integrity and class, a true gentleman. He wasn’t just a Dodger. He loved the game of baseball that we all love and care about.”

Dodgers and San Diego Padres players stood along the first- and third-base lines during the ceremony.

When Scully called his last game at Dodger Stadium in 2016, he had a banner that hung from his booth that read: “I’ll miss you.”

Scully told the crowd that he needed them far more than they needed him. On Friday, it was the crowd’s turn to send a message to Scully, whose last visit to the venue was on June 9, 2021.
