Dodger Fan Danny Kaye

Today is the 100th anniversary of the birth of entertainer Danny Kaye in Brooklyn, NY. Kaye is known by Los Angeles baseball fans for his famous 1962 “D-O-D-G-E-R-S Song” in which he sings about a mythical game between the Dodgers and Giants. Kaye later became one of the original owners of the American League expansion Seattle Mariners in 1977. When Kaye was to be honored at the Kennedy Center in 1984, he asked his good friend, Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully, to introduce him at the awards ceremony.
