Dodgers announcer par excellence Vin Scully will return in 2010.
Missing out on a little Dodger action after the heartbreaker of a post-season? Never fear, our trusty Dodgers have ensured that at least one constant will remain between last season and the next. The club announced that beloved Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will return to the booth in Chavez Ravine to call Dodger games in 2010.

The return of the veteran broadcaster builds upon an unprecedented streak as the longest-running professional sports announcer in any sport. Scully relocated to Los Angeles with the Dodgers when the team made the move from Brooklyn in 1957-58.

"“For six decades, Dodger fans have been truly blessed to have Vin Scully on the air and we are honored that he will be back in the booth again next season,” said Dodger Owner Frank McCourt. “He has been the one constant over the years and I know that our fans will cherish every game he calls.”

Among Scully's memorable calls are the Dodger's 1955 World Series championship (back when the team was in Brooklyn), Sandy Koufax's 1965 perfect game, Hank Aaron's record-setting 715th Home run(listen to the end) and the famed Kirk Gibson pinch-hit walk-off home run in 1988.

Looking forward to next year, Scully said, “I’m very excited and optimistic about 2010 and the direction we’re heading and we’ll take it year-to-year after that.”
