New York Mets Broadcast Pays Tribute To Late Dodgers Official Scorer Dennis D’Agostino

The New York Mets broadcast on PIX11 paid tribute to Dennis D’Agostino, who worked as an official scorer, statistician, sports historian and public relations expert at Dodger Stadium and in the NBA.

The just-completed weekend series was the Mets’ first visit to Dodger Stadium since D’Agostino passed away in September of last year.

D’Agostino spent 36 seasons with the New York Knicks as a team historian and writer, and the past nine seasons with the Golden State Warriors, which included each of their six NBA Finals appearances.

“Dennis passionately and masterfully chronicled the story of our organization for more than three decades,” the Knicks said in a statement at the time of D’Agostino’s passing.

“As a native New Yorker, he offered an artistic reverence to communicating the Knicks legacy to our loyal fanbase like no one else could. Our thoughts are with his loved ones during this difficult time.”

D’Agostino first started working in sports with the Mets public relations department after graduating from Fordham University. In addition to working in baseball, he also had a long career in the NBA.

The NBA also issued a statement, calling D’Agostino “the quintessential public relations expert and a beloved member of the NBA family.”

“His genial and gregarious presence made him a joy to be around and an invaluable resource to the league office,” their statement added.

D’Agostino is survived by his wife and retired L.A. Times sports columnist Helene Elliot.

Dodgers official scorer

D’Agostino worked at Dodger Stadium for the last three decades and often assisted visiting team’s broadcasters with statistics and anecdotes when not serving as the Dodgers’ official scorer.

The Los Angeles Dodgers honored D’Agostino in the Vin Scully Press Box last year with a bouquet of roses and a memorial card in the front row.
