Vin Scully Hints Retirement (Again) After 2014 Season
October 2, 2013 at 1:14 PM (PT)
He has been down this road before and come back anyway, but legendary LOS ANGELES DODGERS broadcaster VIN SCULLY hinted in an interview with SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC RADIO noncommercial News-Talk KPCC/PASADENA-LOS ANGELES that the 2014 season may be his last at the mic.
SCULLY, who announced earlier this season that he will return next season for his 65th with the team stretching back to the franchise's BROOKLYN days, said, “I’m pretty well sure – and I don’t want to go back and forth with it – but I’m looking to next year and thinking that should be about it."
For this season's playoffs, SCULLY, as is the custom under MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL rules regarding national broadcasts of all postseason games, will be heard only on the radio, calling the first three and last three innings of the games on DODGERS flagship CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KLAC-A/LOS ANGELES. During the regular season, SCULLY is heard on television for all nine innings and for the first three innings in a simulcast with the radio side, and only for games in the western U.S.
