Vin Scully To Return To Dodgers For 2011 Season

Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully has decided to return for his 62nd season with the club, the team announced today. Scully, who has called Dodger games since 1950, will call all home games and all road games within the National League West, as he has done the last few seasons.

“I’m just honored and humbled to continue my association with the Dodgers, which has been a major part of my life,” said Scully.

Scully’s 61 years of service constitute the longest tenure of any broadcaster in sports history. While he handles all nine innings of the team’s television broadcasts on PRIME TICKET and KCAL 9, the first three innings of each of his games are also simulcast on KABC 790 AM.

“I’m as thrilled as our fans that Vin will be returning,” said Dodger Owner Frank McCourt. “He is not only the greatest broadcaster of all time, but also a wonderful friend."

Vin Scully To Announce Plans On Sunday

Legendary announcer Vin Scully, currently in his 61st season calling Dodger games, will announce his future plans on before Sunday's game with the Reds. T.J. Simers of the Los Angeles Times caught up with Scully before Saturday's game:

"I know what I am going to do and I would imagine the Dodgers will arrange things so an announcement can be made before [Sunday's] game,'' said Scully, who will be 83 before the start of next season. "I'd like to do that so everyone hears it at the same time. It's the proper way to do it.''

Scully began his career with the Dodgers in 1950, and has been the club's main broadcaster every year they have been in Los Angeles, since 1958. In addition to his Dodger broadcasts, Scully has called play-by-play for the NFL and PGA Tour, and broadcast the baseball Game of the Week for NBC from 1983-1989. Scully has called 25 World Series and 12 All-Star Games.

In 1982, Scully was inducted into the broadcast wing of the National Baseball Hall of Fame as the Ford C. Frick Award recipient.
