"Growing up in LA, he was the voice I always heard. Back when I played my first big league game against the Dodgers, we were playing them in Toronto. The next day, I was watching my at-bats from that game. The sound was on, and normally the sound isn't on, but I put it on and I heard Vin Scully, talking about me being a hometown guy from California. It meant the world to me. It was a really goosebump moment for me just hearing him say my name." - Chris Woodward, Texas Rangers manager and former Dodgers coach in a statement.

"His last home game at Dodger Stadium. You know, I got lucky in the moment, walk-off homer to clinch the division. And then afterward, we're all celebrating and they're showing moments now, where we all just turned our attention to Vin and his wife, Sandra. It was a pretty cool moment." - Texas Rangers infielder Charlie Culbertson, a former member of the Dodgers.
