Vin Scully to return for 63rd season with Dodgers in 2012

Scully

Vin Scully told fans watching the Dodgers-Rockies game tonight that he would return to broadcast Dodger games in 2012, his 63rd season behind the mic with the team. 

As he has in recent years, Scully will call Dodger home games and road games in Colorado and west of the Rockies.
 
“I don’t want to make a big deal out of it, you and I have been friends for a long time,” Scully told the Prime Ticket audience. “But after a lot of soul searching and a few prayers, we’ve decided that we will come back with the Dodgers for next year. God’s been awfully good to me, allowing me to do the things I love to do. I asked him one more year at least and he said okay.”
 
Scully’s 62 years of service are the longest of any broadcaster with one team in sports history. Inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982, he has broadcast three perfect games, 19 no-hitters, 25 World Series and 12 All-Star Games.
