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.

  1. Mozel Tov, Congrats and everything good for and about Vin Scully.
    I had the great pleasure to work directly with Vin on many CBS Sports broadcasts over quite a few years all over this country.
    A natural communicative talent who taught this veteran broadcaster a lot just by being around his thinking and practices.
    The Dodger organization and fans have benefited all sixty-three years Vin has been their voice.
    A class act both on, and off, air.
    All my best Vinny.
