It looks like one of the all-time legends of the booth will be back for yet another season. According to the LA Times, Vin Scully will be returning to broadcast Los Angeles Dodgers games for an astounding 65th year with the franchise. Vin Scully is 85 years young, and his voice is as soothing as ever. Here is to 10 more.
Scully had this to say about the decision:
“It has been such an exciting, enjoyable, wonderful season — the big crowds in the ballpark, everybody is talking about the ballclub, and I really respect, admire and love the management — so everything just fell into place,” Scully said.
“I really still enjoy it immensely. My health is good, thank God. So why not? And my wife said, ‘Why not?’ as well.
“Just the thought of walking away from it to retirement — and looking out the window or something? It’s just too good. As a baseball man, and someone who has always loved the game, the situation and the conditions are perfect.”
