Want one last chance to appreciate a legend before he’s gone?

MLB Network will air Vin Scully’s final broadcast at Dodger Stadium on Sunday as the Dodgers host the Colorado Rockies.

The network will simulcast SportsNet LA’s production of the game, including Scully’s commentary, to cities outside the Dodgers’ and Rockies’ home markets.

Scully, 88, is in his closing stretch as a broadcaster for the Dodgers, a role he has filled for the last 67 seasons. His final game will be the Dodgers’ regular-season finale on Oct. 2 in San Francisco.

Scully has received endless gestures of admiration and respect this year, telling reporters on a conference call Monday that his swan song isn’t really about him and that it’s been “a little embarrassing” to receive so much praise.

“First of all, I attribute it to one thing and one thing only: God’s grace to allow me to do what I’ve been doing for 67 years,” he said. “To me, that’s really the story. It’s not me. I’m just a vessel that was passed hand to hand down through all those years. So I don’t take it to heart as some great compliment.”
