LOS ANGELES -- To get to the Dodgers home opener on Tuesday, a large chunk of fans will likely use or be near Vin Scully Avenue. The official dedication of the street name change will be on Monday morning, the Dodgers announced today.
The dedication will take place at 11:15 a.m. PT, and will be at Gate A at Dodger Stadium, just off Sunset Blvd, after the final street signage will be in place. The signs on the former Elysian Park Avenue will begin changing at 6:30 a.m.
The event is open to the public, with parking available in Lots 13 and 14, just outside the stadium.
Scully and Dodgers CEO Stan Kasten will take part in the dedication, along with Mayor Eric Garcetti and City Councilman Gil Cedillo, who introduced the proposal in January.
"I am overwhelmed. I was raised in the streets of New York and to have a street named after me in Los Angeles is almost too much to comprehend," Scully said in a statement from January.
