The Dodgers paid tribute to legendary broadcaster Vin Scully, who called Los Angeles games for nearly six decades, before Friday’s contest against the Padres. Scully died on Wednesday at the age of 94.

Dodgers fans shared a moment of silence to pay tribute to Scully, then a touching video played on the screen. Here’s a look:

Los Angeles played another video montage in Scully’s honor, featuring the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” then Dodgers announcers Joe Davis and Oriel Hirscher unveiled a banner that read “Vin – We will miss you! Under the broadcasting booth he lived for more than half a century.

To close the ceremony, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts took the mic and delivered a heartfelt message to Scully.

“He really deserved it at that moment,” Roberts said with his team gathered in front of the pitcher’s mound. “Vin was a man of character, integrity, class. A true gentleman. And he wasn’t just a Dodger. He loved the game of baseball that we all love and care about.”

Roberts then got the crowd of nearly 50,000 at Dodger Stadium to shout “It’s Dodger baseball time,” the five words he says will forever be associated with Scully.

Scully, the Dodgers’ play-by-play broadcaster from 1950-2016, enjoyed an unforgettable career in Los Angeles and beyond. Among his many honors are a place in the Baseball Hall of Fame, the Commissioner’s Historic Achievement Award, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
