Dodgers To Broadcast 50 Spanish Language Telecasts On Prime Ticket

The Los Angeles Dodgers will have 50 games televised in Spanish on Prime Ticket in the upcoming 2012 season. This season's coverage welcomes in the on-air talents of Jorge Jarrín, the son of Hall of Famer Jaime Jarrín. Jarrín joins legendary Dodgers coach Manny Mota for games televised in Spanish.

"Captain" Jorge Jarrín will be taking on the full-time gig after being laid off as a traffic reporter by the Los Angeles-based radio station KABC 790 last October.

Jaime Jarrín will continue to call Dodger games in Spanish on the radio for his 54th season, the longest ever in MLB's Spanish-language broadcasting history. Fans can listen to Spanish games on the radio at Univision Radio's 1020 AM.

According to an official press release by the team, more than 40 percent of the Dodgers' fans are Hispanic. The team was the first MLB club to implement a Spanish-language radio broadcast in 1958.
