Los Angeles City Hall will light up in Dodger blue Wednesday evening to honor Vin Scully, the legendary sports broadcaster who was the beloved voice of the Dodgers for 67 years.

Scully died at his home in Hidden Hills on Tuesday, the Dodgers announced. He was 94.

In a statement announcing City Hall’s plans to commemorate Scully’s legacy, Mayor Eric Garcetti said the veteran broadcaster was “bigger than baseball.”

“He was the soul of Los Angeles, the undisputed voice of America’s pastime, and the narrator of some of the most thrilling moments of our lives,” Garcetti said.

Vin Scully has died, but his poetic narration of the Dodgers — Los Angeles’ most enduring sports franchise — will ring in our hearts forever.

To celebrate Scully’s life and passion for Los Angeles and his role as one of the leading voices in sports, City Hall will feature blue lights on Wednesday to celebrate Scully “and memorialize the man who could bring a city together with five magic words: ‘It’s time for Dodgers baseball,’” Garcetti said.

Los Angeles International Airport said in a tweet that it will also dedicate a lights tribute to Scully.

“Tonight the iconic LAX pylons will glow in @Dodgers blue as we appreciate and remember this LA legend,” LAX said.

In addition, flowers will be placed at Scully’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at noon Wednesday. The star is located on the north side of the 6600 block of Hollywood Boulevard.
