Dodgers Make Vero Beach Departure Official

The Dodgers kissed Vero Beach goodbye officially today, as they notified Indian River County they won't be holding spring training as part of the Grapefruit League in 2009.
"I guess there's no particular place in the world -- including my home -- that holds more memories for me than Dodgertown," Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully said Friday in the Dodger Stadium press box that bears his name.

"I've been going there for 59 years, and just imagine the parade of players, coaches, newspapermen, owners and managers that went through there. So it really has always been cherished ground for me. But nothing is forever, and it was time. I mean, that was hallowed ground for the Brooklyn Dodgers. But it should be closer to Los Angeles, so I'm all for it. To me, there's no deep sentiment. I'm not touched by leaving there."
