Vin Scully's Future Plans

Today, Dodger fans will find out what Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully plans to do beyond 2010. The team said that an announcement would be made before Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Reds. Vin, who has been with the Dodgers for 61 seasons, said last fall that he still loves the job, but that it's getting harder to be away from his wife during the season. He's been working on a series of one-year contracts, and he had said he would work this season and then decide his future.

But he gives no hints as to what tomorrow's announcement may be.


"I know what I am going to do and I would imagine the Dodgers will arrange things so an announcement can be made before Sunday's game. I'd like to do that so everyone hears it at the same time. It's the proper way to do it.''

Please Vinny, stay ONE more season, just one more. Dodger fans need to hear your voice. Lately, it's been the only good thing fans get out of a Dodger game. I'm hoping we'll get good news, but if he finally decides to retire, I'll understand. He's had a long career. At some point it needs to come to an end. Hopefully, it comes to an end after the 2011 season.


According to @DodgertownUSA, it looks like Vin will be back in 2011. I am so damn happy right now.


  1. One more! One more! We might not get a lot of W's this season, but we always have a V and that's soo important for morale.

  2. I am not ready for baseball without V.Scully. I also hope he stays on for another year or even two. He's still sharp as a tack. By the time my east coast games finish Vin Scully is just getting started. During the late east coast nights there is nothing I'd rather hear besides Vin Scully before I go to bed.

  3. Yeah, I honesty say that I'm not ready for Mr. Scully to retire. He tells so many great stories.

  4. BTB - Wow, you're a great baseball fan. I'm hoping he will at least stay on to do home games. We'll have to wait and see.

  5. Jessica - yeah, he's the best story teller in baseball. The man's got a million of them.
