What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
If you are a fan of baseball, you have no choice but to be happy that Dodger broadcasting legend Vin Scully is not retiring at the end of the 2010 season.
LOS ANGELES (AP)– Vin Scully said Sunday he’ll return to the broadcast booth to call Los Angeles Dodgers games next year for his 62nd season because “when push came to shove, I just did not want to leave.”
The 82-year-old Hall of Famer, whose nearly 61 years of service make him the longest tenured broadcaster in sports history, said he made the decision with the blessing of his wife, Sandy, and his five children.
Scully will continue calling all Dodgers home games and road games against NL West and AL West opponents. He calls all nine innings of the team’s television broadcasts, while the first three innings of his games are simulcast on the radio.
He works alone on the air and long ago reduced his travel schedule to avoid calling games east of the Rockies.
All I can say is I’m glad I have yet another season to play the Vin Scully Drinking Game.
