Scully Back for 2011

Thank God!

LOS ANGELES -- Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will return for a 62nd season at the microphone in 2011, the Dodgers announced on Sunday.

"I'm just honored and humbled to continue my association with the Dodgers, which has been a major part of my life," Scully said in a team release.

Scully, 82, has been working on one-year contracts since 2009. His recent workload has been to call virtually all home games, plus road games as far east as Colorado. He made no commitment beyond 2011.

Thanks to Dusty Baker for the tip!

Beat you by two minutes!

We both thanked a higher power. That Vin Scully must be something special.

Dusty Baker said...

Thank Vin, but then, that would be a tautology.

How are you, Erin?

I'm doing well, Sax. Slowly trying to get back into the blogging world. You know, just in time to write about the Dodgers losing every night. I'm a natural pessimist, though, so maybe this will be where I really hit my stride.

Epic publicist fail.
