A Sigh Of Relief: Vin Scully Will Return For 2011

New, 56 comments

The Dodgers announced this morning that Vin Scully will return for 2011:

"I’m just honored and humbled to continue my association with the Dodgers, which has been a major part of my life," said Scully.

Scully’s 61 years of service constitute the longest tenure of any broadcaster in sports history. While he handles all nine innings of the team’s television broadcasts on PRIME TICKET and KCAL 9, the first three innings of each of his games are also simulcast on KABC 790 AM.

"I’m as thrilled as our fans that Vin will be returning," said Dodger Owner Frank McCourt. "He is not only the greatest broadcaster of all time, but also a wonderful friend."

Scully, like he has the past few years, will announce all home games, and NL West road games. Next year will be his 62nd season with the Dodgers.
