“Vin Scully’s last calls will be heard by all of Southern California,” reports the Los Angeles Times.
The story continues, “KTLA (Channel 5) will air the broadcasts of Scully’s final six regular-season games, the station announced Friday. Scully, regarded as the greatest broadcaster in baseball history, is retiring after this season, his 67th as the voice of the Dodgers.” Scully will be 89 in October.
The story adds, “The games on KTLA: Sept. 23-25 against the Colorado Rockies, and Sept. 30-Oct. 2 at the San Francisco Giants. KTLA also will air the Vin Scully Appreciation Night tributes before the Sept. 23 game.”
For the last two years the Dodgers have had an exclusive deal with Time Warner Cable, and most other outlets in the L.A. area have not made a deal with TWC to carry the baseball team.
