With a reveal in the second inning of tonight’s Dodger game, Vin Scully has officially announced he will return to the Dodgers broadcast booth for his 67th season in 2016.
“I talked it over with my wife, Sandi, and my family and we’ve decided to do it again in 2016,” Scully said. “There’s no place like home and Dodger Stadium and we look forward to being a part of it with all of our friends.”
Said Dodger president and CEO Stan Kasten: “Vin is a national treasure, and the Dodgers couldn’t be happier to have him back at the microphone in 2016. Vin makes every broadcast special, and generation after generation of Dodger fans have been blessed to be able to listen to him create his poetic magic since 1950. We look forward to adding many new chapters to that legacy in 2016.”
If you date the franchise back to its American Association roots in 1884, Brooklyn played 66 seasons before Scully’s arrival, and Brooklyn-Los Angeles has played 66 seasons since.
