Legendary broadcaster Vin Scully, whose career began back when the Dodgers were still in Brooklyn, has announced that he plans to return for a 65th year as the warm voice of the team.
Scully, 85, cut back on his duties several years ago, chiefly working the Dodgers’ home and West Coast games. Scully does play-by-play on television (KCAL and Prime Ticket/Fox Sports West) as well as radio (KLAC, 570 AM).
Scully’s soothing voice, elegant style, attention to detail and contagious affection for baseball have made him beloved to generations of Dodger fans as well as a national audience — at different points in his career, Scully has covered baseball, football, tennis and golf for the major networks.
Scully’s time with a single team is the longest in broadcast history, but he’s not the longest-tenured Dodger employee — Tommy Lasorda joined the team a year before Scully.
