The iconic voice of Vin Scully has commit to broadcast for the Los Angeles Dodgers for a 66th year. As the living legend celebrates his 65th anniversary, it is a pure joy to know that fans will hear “It is time for Dodgers baseball” for one more year.
Vin Scully, however, may be providing a glimpse of what the future holds for the Los Angeles Dodgers. It’s been almost 26 years since the Dodgers last won the World Series. With the current state of the Dodgers as-is, there is no one better than Vin Scully to call a Dodgers World Series win. It would be un-American any other way!
It’s quite motivating and raises the bar of expectations on the Dodgers to know Vin Scully is returning to the booth. One can view this is an optimistic view that Scully, 86, believes that in the very near future, that he will be calling the Los Angeles Dodgers World Series run.
Scully has broadcasted 5 Dodgers’ World Series in his career. And, with over 70% of Los Angeles STILL unable to hear his immortal voice on TV still a nagging process, Scully proves further his undying love for the fans by returning as well.
“Naturally there will come a time, when I will have to say goodbye, but I’ve soul-searched and this is not the time,” Scully said in a statement. Scully’s current 65 years of broadcasting for the Dodgers is the longest tenure of any broadcaster with one team. And quite possibly, considering the Dodgers recent history of progress, Vin Scully may be the first and only broadcaster to broadcast a teams first world series win….and most recent before he hangs it up.
