From "Vin Scully will be back in the booth next season" by Bill Shaikin at the LA Times:
In a year that has been so improbable, the incredible has happened.
Not Magic. Not Hanley Ramirez. Not Adrian Gonzalez. Better than all of that.
Vin Scully is coming back. The Dodgers are expected to announce Sunday that Scully will return to the Dodgers' broadcast booth next season.
Scully has been the sound of summer in Southern California for more than half a century, from transistor radios to Twitter. We are blessed to be able to pull up a chair and spend part of another year with him.
He will call it a career after one of these summers, and a city will lose its voice.
It could have been this summer. He is 84, after all. The travel gets old. The grandchildren get older.
But Scully is healthy, and he is energized by the Dodgers' new ownership group. The Dodgers just might win again soon. He would hate to miss out, and we would hate for him to miss out. [...]
One of the blessings of technology is that Scully's stories need not vanish into thin air. The Sons of Steve Garvey website maintains a "Vin Scully Repository," with transcripts of his best stories over the last five years.
Twitter is at your service too, to collect Scully's best one-liners. Check out @vinscullytweet.
I constantly struggle to find perspective and gratitude, so I'm going to take today as a nice reality check. Life is good. Thanks for coming back, Vin. We're already looking forward to it.
