Dodgers announce 2013 broadcast schedule

Vin Scully will once again call every home and road game in California and Arizona that is not broadcast exclusively on ESPN or Fox.


The Dodgers on Monday announced their broadcast schedule for 2013, their final season with Prime Ticket and KCAL. The team opens the season on Apr. 1 at home against the Giants, a 1:10 p.m. PT game that will be broadcast by Prime Ticket and also on ESPN, though the ESPN broadcast will be blacked out in Los Angeles.

Vin Scully, entering his record 64th consecutive season as announcer for the Dodgers, will hold roughly the same schedule as in 2012. Scully will call every Dodgers game home or road in California or Arizona that isn't exclusively broadcast by ESPN or Fox.

By quick count, it looks like the maximum number of games Scully will broadcast in 2013 is 106, with a minimum of 98.

The Dodgers are scheduled to be on the Fox Saturday Game of the Week on May 25 vs. St. Louis, Jun. 22 at San Diego, Jul. 6 at San Francisco, Jul. 13 vs. Colorado, Aug. 3 at the Cubs, Aug. 10 vs. Tampa Bay, Aug. 24 vs. Boston, and Sep. 7 at Cincinnati.

ESPN Sunday Night Baseball will feature the Dodgers on May 5, against the Giants in San Francisco. More exclusive ESPN and Fox games on Saturdays and Sundays will be added throughout the season, as the networks fill out the remainder of their schedule during the campaign.

The Dodgers are also on TBS twice in the first two months of the season, though those broadcasts aren't exclusive. The game on Apr. 21 in Baltimore is on TBS and Prime Ticket, as is the May 19 game in Atlanta.

For the road games that Scully does not cover, Eric Collins will be the play-by-play man for his fifth season covering the Dodgers and will be joined by Steve Lyons, in his ninth season as Dodgers analyst.

The Dodgers will broadcast all 162 regular season games on the radio in both English (570 KLAC) and Spanish (1020 KTNQ). Charley Steiner, entering his ninth season as a Dodgers announcer, will be the play-by-play man, joined by Rick Monday, in his 21st season as Dodgers broadcaster.

The Spanish telecasts will be headlined by Hall of Famer Jaime Jarrin, in his 55th season with the Dodgers. He will be joined by longtime broadcasting parters Pepe Yniguez, in his 19th season, and Fernando Valenzuela, entering his 11th year as an announcer with the team.

The games with a broadcast station yet unknown are Friday, Apr. 12 in Arizona, a 6:40 p.m. PT start.

The games with an undetermined start times are mostly holds for ESPN or Fox: Sunday, Jun. 9 vs. Atlanta (Prime Ticket), Sunday, Jun. 30 vs. Philadelphia (KCAL), Friday, Aug. 2 at the Cubs (Prime Ticket), Sunday, Aug. 11 against the Rays (KCAL), Sunday. Aug. 25 against the Red Sox (Prime Ticket), Sunday, Sep. 15 against San Francisco (Prime Ticket), and Saturday, Sep. 28 vs. San Francisco (Prime Ticket).
