On October 2nd, 2016, the voice of the Dodgers, Vin Scully, broadcast his final game at Oracle Park in San Francisco. Unfortunately, this game ended in a 7-1 loss for the Dodgers. Scully’s legendary career included over 9,000 games including, 21 no-hitters and three perfect games, over 67 years. The game ended with Scully singing a pre-recorded version of “Wind Beneath My Wings.” Later the same year, the Los Angeles City Council unanimously voted to change the address of Dodger Stadium to 1000 Vin Scully Avenue, formerly Elysian Park Avenue.
