WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Vince Scully
The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian award in the United States. It recognizes those individuals who have made “an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors”
Vincent “Vin” Scully is a national treasure who has brought erudition not to just Dodgers fans but to all baseball fans. In his 63 years as the play-by-play announcer for both the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers, the longest tenure of any broadcaster with a single team in professional sports history, he has been the voice of history
He is deserving of every honor and should be saluted while he is alive to appreciate it.
