Vin Scully announced yesterday that he has decided to return to the booth for the Dodgers in 2014, thus saving us all from the potential broadcast hell of having to listen to Eric Collins and Steve Lyons for 162 games.
Vin Scully, the voice of Dodgers summers for the past seven decades, will spend at least one more season behind the mic, The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday night.
The legendary Dodgers broadcaster will enter his 65th season as the club’s announcer in 2014.
“I really still enjoy it immensely,” Scully told the Times. “My health is good, thank God. So why not? And my wife said, ‘Why not?’ as well.”
“It has been such an exciting, enjoyable, wonderful season — the big crowds in the ballpark, everybody is talking about the ballclub and I really respect, admire and love the management — so everything just fell into place,” Scully said.
So Yasiel Puig being insane probably factored in Scully returning. Think about that.
Headline: “YASIEL PUIG CONVINCES VIN SCULLY TO RETURN TO THE BOOTH!”
Nothing Puig can do the rest of his career is potentially as valuable as this.
