Dodgers fans are having one heck of a weekend.
Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that television broadcaster Vin Scully will return to the booth in 2013 for his 64th season of play-by-play.
Scully, 84, has considered calling it a career after each of the past couple seasons, but Shaikin says he’s “healthy” and “energized by the Dodgers’ new ownership group,” which has changed the feel of the franchise in mere weeks. Scully began calling Dodgers games in 1950, before the move from Brooklyn.
