Few names are considered to be living legends, but Los Angeles Dodgers broadcast Vin Scully is exactly that.
More than just the Dodgers, Scully is broadcasting greatness, winning countless awards over the years as he was the featured broadcaster on both NBC and CBS for many years.
Now in his 64th year of calling Dodgers baseball, dating all the way back to Brooklyn, the team is expected to announce Scully will return for his 65th season sometime later today.
Per the Los Angeles Times:
The Dodgers are expected to announce Friday that Scully, the finest broadcaster in baseball history, will return for a record 65th season in 2014.
“It has been such an exciting, enjoyable, wonderful season — the big crowds in the ballpark, everybody is talking about the ballclub, and I really respect, admire and love the management — so everything just fell into place,” Scully said.
“I really still enjoy it immensely. My health is good, thank God. So why not? And my wife said, ‘Why not?’ as well.
“Just the thought of walking away from it to retirement — and looking out the window or something? It’s just too good. As a baseball man, and someone who has always loved the game, the situation and the conditions are perfect.”
