scully385 Scully to Return for 62nd Year

Legendary broadcaster Vin Scully is returning for his 62nd season as the Los Angeles Dodgers’ play-by-play man. The team announced Sunday the 82-year-old Hall of Famer has agreed to a one-year contract extension through 2011 season. Scully told gathered media at Dodger Stadium he compares his relationship with the team to a “marriage,” and says his wife told him to keep doing what he loves. Scully joined the Brooklyn Dodgers as an announcer in 1950, just one year after graduating from Fordham University. He and the late Jerry Doggett then made the move with the team when it relocated to Los Angeles in 1958. Scully was inducted into the broadcasters’ Hall of Fame in 1982. In addition to the Dodgers, he was also an NFL broadcaster on NBC for many years, as well as the network’s lead national baseball play-by-play announcer.

    Being a lifelong Dodgers fan, Vin has been with me since I came into sports in 1969! With all the bad news going around, scandals, wars, deaths, tragedies, lawsuits and so forth; it is nice to hear that one constant pleasure is going to be around even longer-and that is my man-Vin Scully! Just hearing his voice, reguardless of what the Dodgers are actually doing on the field, brings peace of mind and serenity as I watch/listen to Vin’s picturesque presentations. Thank you Vin, you have brought great news to myself and millions of others who have become addicted to your work of art!
