(AP) — Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tuesday at the White House.


Scully retired last month after spending his entire 67-year career in the booth for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

He turns 89 on Nov. 27.

Scully is one of 21 recipients of the Medal of Freedom announced Wednesday, including NBA Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Jordan.

The award is the nation’s highest civilian honor, given to individuals who have made meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the U.S., to world peace or cultural or other major public/private endeavors.
