The Pasadena Tournament of Roses will take place in Pasadena per usual on New Year’s Day.
Here is the specific excerpt regarding Jaime Jarrin:
Jaime Jarrin is one of the most recognizable voices in all of sports broadcasting, has been calling Dodger games since 1959. Last season, the Hall of Famer was added to the club’s Ring of Honor with his name being permanently affixed to Dodger Stadium. In 1998, he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. In 1998, Jarrin received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and is a member of both the California Broadcasters’ Association Halls of Fame and the Southern California Sports Broadcasters’ Association, which awarded him the organization’s Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019.
Jarrin will join Sonia Manzano and Ellen Ochoa to complete the trio that will ride together down Colorado Boulevard in a 1915 Pierce Arrow Model 48.
Manzano is known for her work on Sesame Street where she was named among the 25 Greatest Latino Rold Models Ever. Ochoa, as Dodgers Insider notes, was the first Hispanic woman to go to space.
It’s safe to say that Jarrin will join elite company on January 1st.
