Vin Scully Will Call Dodgers Opener On Radio
February 21, 2011 at 4:27 AM (PT)
With the LOS ANGELES DODGERS' opener against the defending World Champion SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS moved to MARCH 31st for national telecast by ESPN, VIN SCULLY would normally not call the game, since he generally does not work on nights when the games are nationally televised. But SCULLY will make an exception for the opener, calling the first three innings and innings seven through nine on the DODGERS network, headed by CITADEL Talk KABC-A/LOS ANGELES.
Using the configuration the team's radio network uses for post-season games, RICK MONDAY and CHARLEY STEINER will call the middle three innings. SCULLY normally simulcasts the games he works for three innings, then splits to call the rest of the game on television while MONDAY and STEINER take over on the radio side.
SCULLY will be calling his 54th home opener in LOS ANGELES; he joined the team in BROOKLYN in 1950.
