The only downside of the Dodgers winning the World Series this season was the fact that it couldn’t be called by Vin Scully. Well, Major League Baseball made sure to do something about that.

On Wednesday, it was announced that the Hall of Fame broadcaster who called Dodgers games for 67 years will narrate Major League Baseball’s official World Series documentary.

“It was 32 years since the Dodgers won a World Series and the seventh in the history of the organization, bringing great joy to their fans and the city of Los Angeles in particular,” Scully said in a statement Wednesday. “This is their winning story against the Tampa Bay Rays, and it’s an honor for me to recount just how they did it.”

Here is more information about the documentary:

The two-disc Blu-ray and DVD combo pack will be available to purchase and download Dec. 8. The World Series documentary, produced by MLB’s media arm in association with Shout Factory, will also feature in-depth interviews with Dodger stars including National League MVP candidate Mookie Betts, World Series MVP Corey Seager and ace Clayton Kershaw.

The doc will also feature unparalleled access to MLB’s Postseason Bubble that offers fans a never-before-seen look at the Dodgers’ historic championship. Producers used on-site crews who had approved access to the bubble and sorted through hundreds of hours of footage for the doc.

Make sure to order yours! I know for a fact I will.
