Vin Scully will return an an announcer of the Los Angeles Dodgers for the 2014 season, his 65th season in the booth.
Scully will call all of the home games for the Dodgers as well as road games played in California and Arizona.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the excitement of this season, and there is no way I could leave this truly remarkable team and our great fans,” Scully said in a team released statement. “With my wife Sandi’s blessing, I’ve decided I’d like to come back and do it again next season. I love what the new ownership has brought to the team and the energy provided by the fans, who have packed renovated Dodger Stadium. It reminds me that other than being home with my family there is no place else I’d rather be.”
Scully will call all nine innings of the team’s television broadcasts on SportsNet LA beginning next season, with the first three innings of each game simulcast on the radio.
“We’re so grateful that Vin wants to continue to call Dodger games,” Dodgers owner Magic Johnson said. “Being able to listen to Vin helps make every Dodger game something special.”
Scully, 85, began his broadcasting career in 1950 with the Brooklyn Dodgers and was inducted into Baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1982.
