The Los Angeles Dodgers have been very busy this season, adding big names like Hanley Ramirez, Shane Victorino and Adrian Gonzalez to their line-up. But perhaps their biggest announcement came today when legendary announcer Vin Scully confirmed he would be returning to LA for the 2013 season.
Scully, who has been with the team since their Brooklyn days, will be returning to the broadcast booth for his 64th season. The Hall of Fame announcer claims his decision was somewhat based on all of the moves the Dodgers have made this season, saying “it would be pretty hard to walk away from.” Scully is known primarily as being the voice of the Dodgers, but he has also called some classic moments in baseball history such as Hank Aaron’s record breaking 715th home run and Bill Buckner infamous error in the 1986 World Series.
The Dodgers have seen many faces come and go in the past 64 seasons. But one thing has always been the same, and that’s been their voice. I’m sure baseball fans in Los Angeles wouldn’t have it any other way.
