Walk of Fame Ceremony…

Los Angeles Dodgers

 HONORED WITH

AWARD OF EXCELLENCE

Hollywood & Highland

 

June 20, 2008

 

HOLLYWOOD — In celebration of the Dodgers’ 50th anniversary in Los Angeles, the team received an Award of Excellence today from the Hollywood Historic Trust and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

 

Dodgers owner Frank McCourt, and his wife, team President Jamie McCourt, accepted the award at a late-morning ceremony in front of the Hollywood & Highland complex. Former manager Tommy Lasorda, manager Joe Torre and broadcasters Vin Scully and Jaime Jarin also participated in the ceremony.

 

The Dodgers received the award in recognition of the team’s significant contributions to Los Angeles and world culture and entertainment, according to Ana Martinez-Holler, vice president of media relations for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

 

The ceremony came one day before the Dodgers’ 50th annual Hollywood Stars Game, a softball game matching teams of entertainment industry celebrities.

 

The Hollywood Historic Trust and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce began presenting Awards of Excellence in 2005 to various organizations and places. The Dodgers are the seventh recipient of the award.

 

The others were Daily Variety, Disneyland, The Hollywood Reporter, KTLA- TV Channel 5, the Los Angeles Times and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, which presents the Grammy Awards. They differ from stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which honor individuals, performing groups and fictional characters.

    Wonderful news! Should’ve been done long before now. Just saw Brian in “Parent Trap” with Maureen O’Hara & Haley Mills; a definite classic. He is still genuinely missed. Congrats Brian. It’s well deserved!
