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.
