It's Official: Vin Scully to Return in 2010

New, comments

Vin Scully will be back in 2010, for his 61st season with the club.  From the Dodgers:

"For six decades, Dodger fans have been truly blessed to have Vin Scully on the air and we are honored that he will be back in the booth again next season," said Dodger Owner Frank McCourt. "He has been the one constant over the years and I know that our fans will cherish every game he calls."

Scully, who recently completed his record-setting 60th campaign with the Dodgers, will be honored prior to a game next season at Dodger Stadium. His 60 years of service constitute the longest tenure of any broadcaster in sports history.

"We have had two exciting seasons consecutively -- getting into the second round of the playoffs -- and when you get that close, you look to the next year as perhaps the one that you go all the way," said Scully, who celebrated his 82nd birthday on Sunday. "I’m very excited and optimistic about 2010 and the direction we’re heading and we’ll take it year-to-year after that."

Also:

In 2010, Scully will continue to call all Dodger home games and the club's road games against NL West and AL West opponents. While Scully handles all nine innings of the team's television broadcasts, the first three innings of each of his games is simulcast on radio.

Great news!  Welcome back Vin.
