Dodgers to Honor Vin Scully in Two of This Week's Top-Priced Games
September 19, 2016
The end of an era is near in Los Angeles. Iconic broadcaster Vin Scully, widely acclaimed as "The Voice of the Dodgers", will officially retire at the end of the 2016 MLB season, and the Dodgers will celebrate his illustrious career over three games at Dodger Stadium this weekend. Two of those games will be among this week's top-priced games, while the Cubs and Blue Jays also appear on the list for home games against the Cardinals and Yankees, respectively.
Check out the complete list of this week's most expensive games below:
9/23/16 Colorado Rockies @ Los Angeles Dodgers (Vin Scully Appreciation Day) | Average Price: $179.94 | Get-in Price: $17
While the weekend series with the Rockies begins on Thursday, the celebration of Scully's 65-year career with the Dodgers kicks off Friday night.
