The LOS ANGELES DODGERS have inked Hall of Fame Spanish-language play-by-play radio voice JAIME JARRÍN to a new three year deal. JARRIN, 79, has called DODGER games for 57 seasons since the team moved from BROOKLYN, first appearing on KWKW-A and most recently on current DODGERS Spanish flagship UNIVISION Spanish Talk KTNQ-A/LOS ANGELES.
“The DODGERS and our fans are so fortunate to have these two broadcasting icons (JARRIN and VIN SCULLY) describe our games,” said Pres./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.”
“I’ve been so blessed,” said JARRIN. “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.”
