He's Baaack...Scully Returning to the Booth for 67th Season

Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully, an icon in American sports history, has announced he will return to the Dodgers broadcast booth for an unprecedented 67th season in 2016.

"I talked it over with my wife, Sandi, and my family and we've decided to do it again in 2016," Scully said. "There’s no place like home and Dodger Stadium and we look forward to being a part of it with all of our friends."

Widely regarded as the finest sportscaster of all time, Scully's 66 years of service mark the longest tenure in his field.

Scully began his professional baseball broadcasting career in 1950 with the Brooklyn Dodgers. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982. During his unmatched career, he has called three perfect games, 25 no-hitters, 25 World Series and 12 All-Star Games. Iconic moments called by Scully include Kirk Gibson's miraculous Game 1 homer in the 1988 World Series, Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series, Hank Aaron's record-setting 715th home run, Sandy Koufax's four no-hitters, including a perfect game, and the scoreless-inning streaks of Dodger greats Don Drysdale and Orel Hershiser.

When Scully began broadcasting, the Dodgers had yet to win a World Series. Three years later, at the age of 25, he became the youngest person to ever broadcast a World Series game. In 1955, he had his most memorable moment behind the microphone, as he called the Dodgers' first and only championship in Brooklyn.

In Los Angeles, Scully has called Dodgers World Championships in 1959, '63, '65, '81 and '88 and he was elected the top sportscaster of the 20th century by the non-profit American Sportscasters Association.

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
