It was a great weekend at Dodger Stadium for legendary Hall of Famers deciding to return in 2012. Like Vin Scully on Friday night, Jaime Jarrin on Sunday afternoon during his game broadcast on Univision Radio KTNQ 1020 announced his that he would return to broadcast Dodgers games in 2012.

"The Dodgers have invited me back for another season, so you will have to be by my side again," Jarrín joked with analyst Fernando Valenzuela on air during the second inning. "I love what I do. It’s something I love and it brings me great joy to work alongside you and Pepe Yñiguez. I’m pleased to serve the Spanish-language community and really share baseball with them – such a beautiful and pristine sport."

Jarrin has called Dodgers games since 1959, so next season will be his 54th season behind the microphone. It is insane to think that with that many years of experience Jarrin is still second in seniority among Dodgers announcers.

Jarrin had a ridiculous streak from 1962 to 1984 when he called nearly 4,000 consecutive games. Jarrin still calls every game with Pepe Yñiguez, and is joined by Fernando Valenzuela on home games and west coast road games. Jarrin was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1998.
