The Mariners (Washington native Evelyn Jones celebrating her 108th birthday at Safeco Field) and Cubs (using Wrigley Field's new video board for a moving tribute to the late broadcasting legend Harry Caray) were the other finalists.
As a winner, the Dodgers will receive a Greatness in Baseball Yearly (GIBBY) trophy.
The Dodgers and Scully were also recognized in a second award, as the Hall of Fame broadcaster won Best Call, TV honors for his coverage of a rare balk-off win in June.
