Making plans to complete his sixth decade with the Dodgers, Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrin has committed to returning to the Dodgers for three more seasons.
“I’ve been so blessed,” said Jarrin of his tenure with the Dodgers and his broadcasting career. “It has been such a special time sharing the broadcasts with our fans and having my son, Jorge, join me in the booth.
“I started thinking about the number 60 in my mind this season. I sat down with the Dodgers and agreed on three more years to get to my 60th year, and then we’ll see about the future at that time. I’m still having a great time and I love what I am doing. And the Dodgers and our fans have been very supportive.”
Said Dodger president and CEO Stan Kasten. “Jaime is one of the most popular Dodgers among our fan base, and they look forward to his description of each and every game.”
Since joining the Dodgers in 1959, four years after he arrived in the United States from his native Ecuador, Jarrin has called three perfect games, 21 no-hitters, 28 World Series, 28 All-Star games and 31 postseason series. He officially received the Baseball Hall of Fame’s Ford C. Frick Award on July 26, 1998.
