Vin Scully To Announce Dodgers Opening Day On Radio

When the Los Angeles Dodgers moved their home opener with the San Francisco Giants from April 1 to March 31 to accommodate ESPN, it meant the Dodgers lost one more local television broadcast. For the Dodgers, normally that means no Vin Scully, which is a trade no Dodger fan would ever make. However, fear not, Dodgers fans. While the opening day game will be televised on ESPN, Scully will in fact call the game on radio, as part of the Dodger broadcast on 790 KABC.

Scully will call innings one through three and seven through nine, while regular Dodgers radio announcers Charley Steiner and Rick Monday will call innings four through six. This is the typical announcing alignment for the Dodgers during postseason games. Scully, who has been announcing Dodgers games since 1950, has called every single Dodgers home opener since they moved to Los Angeles in 1958.

The Dodgers will face the Giants on March 31, as they open their season with a four-game series with their hated rivals and defending World Series champions. Clayton Kershaw will face off against Tim Lincecum in the first game, an epic pitching matchup to begin the 2011 season.
