Vin Scully to return to Dodgers booth in 2013
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Vin Scully is sticking around another season to broadcast Los Angeles Dodgers games.
The 84-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster will return for a record 64th season in 2013. Scully will call all Dodgers home and road games in California and Arizona.
Scully said Sunday that the team’s new ownership has “revitalized the city, the team, the fans and myself.” He says he’s so convinced of the new owners’ “great purpose and leadership” that he eagerly looks forward to joining them in pursuit of the team’s first World Series title since 1988.
The Dodgers say Scully’s tenure is the longest of any broadcaster with any team. He calls all nine innings of the team’s TV broadcasts, while the first three innings of each of his games are simulcast on radio.
Scully began his professional baseball broadcasting career in 1950 with the Brooklyn Dodgers. He has called three perfect games, 25 no-hitters, 25 World Series and 12 All-Star games.
