Hall of Fame LOS ANGELES DODGERS broadcaster VIN SCULLY announced SUNDAY that he will be returning for a 64th season calling DODGERS games in 2013. SCULLY has been calling DODGER games since 1950 in BROOKLYN, moving with the team to LOS ANGELES in the 1958 season; he presently calls all home games and CALIFORNIA and ARIZONA road games, doing all nine innings solo on television (FOX SPORTS PRIME TICKET and CBS-owned independent KCAL-TV) and simulcast for the first three innings on the DODGER RADIO NETWORK, headed by CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KLAC-A (AM 570 FOX SPORTS LA).
“The new ownership of the DODGERS has revitalized the city, the team, the fans and myself,” said SCULLY. “I am so convinced of their great purpose and leadership that I eagerly look forward to joining them in pursuit of the next DODGERS championship.”
“The DODGERS are ecstatic to have VIN back with the team in 2013,” said new DODGERS Chairman and Owner MARK WALTER. “VIN is a treasure to the DODGERS, baseball and the city of LOS ANGELES and having him continuing his work in the broadcast booth next season means a great deal to all of us.”
“It was a treat to be able to listen to CHICK HEARN through my years with the LAKERS,” said DODGERS co-owner EARVIN "MAGIC" JOHNSON, “and it’s been great to be able to listen to VIN work his magic in the broadcast booth since I came to LOS ANGELES in 1979. Generations of Angelenos have been blessed to have these Hall of Famers in their midst.”
“We’re thrilled to know that in our quest to heighten the fan experience at DODGER STADIUM, the fan experience everywhere VIN’s voice can be heard will continue to be maximized through at least the 2013 season,” said DODGERS Pres./CEO STAN KASTEN.
