Vin Scully Honored

(Los Angeles, CA)  --  Sports broadcasting legend Vin

Scully is being handed another honor.  The longtime Los Angeles Dodgers

announcer will receive the Bud Selig Executive Leadership Award at this year's

annual Professional Baseball Scouts Foundation's Spirit of the game gala

Saturday night in Los Angeles.  Commissioner Selig himself will be on hand

to give the award to Scully.  The charity event will also feature

appearances by ex-Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda and actor Harrison Ford, who is

playing former Dodgers executive Branch Rickey in an upcoming biopic about

Jackie Robinson.  Scully has been with the Dodgers since 1950 and was

inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame's broadcasters wing back in 1982.
