Eric Collins to Call 38 Dodger Games in 2009

The Dodgers today hired Eric Collins as their fill-in announcer for the 38 games on KCAL or FSN Prime Ticket not announced by Vin Scully.  Collins will work with Steve Lyons in those games.  Collins won the job from a group of six announcers that were given auditions this spring.

From the press release:

Collins, 39, was the lead play-by-play announcer for NBC in its baseball coverage of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing , China . For the past five years, he has called ESPN’s College Baseball Super Regionals, and also performed radio and television play by play for the Chicago White Sox on occasions in 2004 and 2008.

Here is Collins' bio on ESPN.
