Jorge Jarrín has called Dodgers games in Spanish alongside his legendary father, Jaime for several years. Today the younger Jarrín announced he is retiring.

The Dodgers made the announcement this afternoon on Twitter.

Jarrín first started working for the Dodgers in 2004, managing radio broadcast sales and Hispanic initiatives. Eight years later he became a member of the Dodgers' broadcast team, pairing up with his Hall of Fame dad in 2015. That made them the first first-ever father-son broadcasting team on MLB Spanish-language radio.
