For Vin Scully, age apparently is just a number.
The 86-year-old Hall of Fame announcer will return for his record 66th season with the Dodgers, making him the longest-tenured broadcaster with one team in sports history. Scully calls all Dodgers home and road games in California and Arizona on SportsNet LA. The first three innings of his games are simulcast on the radio.
“God willing, I will be back next year,” Scully said in a statement released by the team. “Naturally there will come a time when I have to say goodbye, but I’ve soul-searched and this is not the time.”
Scully began his broadcasting career in 1950 with the Brooklyn Dodgers. At 25, he became the youngest person to ever broadcast a World Series game. He has called six Dodgers World Series championships.
