Beloved Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully will be inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame in a ceremony in Las Vegas tomorrow. The National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame honors one radio and one television broadcaster every year.

Scully was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982, awarded a Life Achievement Emmy award in 1995, named the "Sportscaster of the 20th Century" in 2000 and was listed as the #1 sports broadcaster of all time by the American Sportscasters Association in 2009.

Scully's streak of 60 consecutive years calling Dodgers games on radio and television is unprecedented in all of sports. Scully is the only sportscaster the Los Angeles Dodgers have ever had, having relocated West with the team from Brooklyn in 1958. This year, Vin Scully threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Dodgers' opening Day.

If you have never heard the voice of Vin Scully, be a part of broadcasting history and turn on KCAL-9 or tune your radio to a Dodgers radio station during the next Dodgers game.
