An Act of Vin Scully Kindness

Former Dodgers GM and VP of communications Fred Claire shares a favorite memory.

After a season of media tributes, the crescendo has today truly begun. Dodgers broadcasting legend Vin Scully kicks off a final seven-game homestand tonight. He told Dan Patrick this morning that a special letter of dedication that he wrote will be handed out to fans Friday Sept. 23 and that a big, additional surprise awaits the faithful at Dodger Stadium on Sunday Sept. 25.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles Daily News columnist Tom Hoffarth has been culling memories from Scully media colleagues and today continues that series with Fred Claire, who first met Scully in the late 1950s while working as a newspaper sports editor, before going on to serve as the baseball club’s VP of communications and GM.
