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."
