The Los Angeles Dodgers have a special thing going on this year that goes beyond the team’s players, coaches or even the teams win loss record for that matter: It’s Vin Scully fever.

After 67 years in the broadcast booth, the famed baseball announcer will call his last three home games in front of sold out crowds at Dodgers Stadium.

“Vin Scully Weekend” will include special tributes during the team’s series against the visiting Colorado Rockies, then it’s on to San Francisco where the “Voice of the Dodgers” will call his final game Oct. 2 against the Giants.

The final home stand games are sold out and can be seen on KTLA 5 over the weekend.

At 88-years-old, Scully says this is it, again telling reporters Tuesday he won’t broadcast any Dodgers games during the post-season.

The yearlong goodbye has been building in intensity, made all the better by the Dodgers’ winning season and the promise of post-season play.

Could it be the Scully’s magic has traveled to the players through a force only they can understand? Whatever it is, Dodgers fans couldn’t be more excited. “Vin Fever” is everywhere.

Scully already has the key to Angelenos’ hearts and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will make it official tonight when he presents the Ford C. Frick Award winner a Key to the City during a ceremony before tonight’s Dodgers-Rockies game.

Fireworks will light up the sky over Dodgers Stadium tonight, but as every fan knows, Vin Scully is the brightest light out there.
