At the 21st annual Southern California Sports Broadcasters awards luncheon on Monday, Vin Scully was named the Best Radio Play-by-Play Announcer for the 13th time. Scully, who is a member of the Southern California Sports Broadcasters Hall of Fame, has also won the Best Television Play-by-Play Announcer honor 10 times. This year, the TV honor went to Bob Miller, longtime announcer of the Los Angeles Kings.
This year will be Scully's 63rd season announcing Dodgers games. No matter how many times I see, say, or type those words, they still amaze me.
Rick Monday, who will return for his 19th season as a Dodgers announcer, was named Best Radio Color Commentator by the Southern California Sports Broadcasters, in the annual ceremony held this year at Lakeside Country Club in Toluca Lake.
Clayton Kershaw was also on hand to accept the Chuck Benedict Outstanding Achievement Award for his accomplishments on and off the field in 2011.
