Scully pitches retirement

Hall of Fame broadcaster says next season is his last

Vin Scully’s finally hanging up his mic at the end of the 2010 season –probably.

The iconic Hall of Fame broadcaster, who’s in his 60th season broadcasting Dodgers games, told the Los Angeles Times that he’s planning to return next season and then retire. Speculation has persisted that Scully, 81, would retire after the current season.

“God willing, I will probably come back for one more year,” Scully said. “At this moment, my health is excellent, and I’m leaning toward one more year.”

Scully’s tenure with the Dodgers is believed to be the longest of any broadcaster with a single pro sports team.
