Legendary Baseball Announcer Will Stay on the Job at Least One More Year TVNewser
A Hall of Fame baseball broadcaster has confirmed that he will keep his job for at least one more year, TVNewser.com reports. Vin Scully will continue as the television broadcaster for the Los Angeles Dodgers through 2012, according to the report.
During Friday's broadcast of the Dodgers and Colorado Rockies, Scully announced that he will be returning for a 63rd season (!) with the team. He began with the Dodgers when they were still in Brooklyn.
According to L.A. Times columnist T.J. Simers, Dodgers season-ticket holders were recently sent a mailing in which they were asked to rate Scully's performance. Results weren’t available, but a team spokesman said recently that the job is Scully’s for as long as he wants it, according to Simers.
