Vin Scully, the beloved Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster, will return for a record 65th season, The Los Angeles Times' Bill Shaikin reported Thursday.
Scully, 85, and the Dodgers officially announced the move Friday.
Scully has taken the decision to return on a season-by-season basis. He has now decided he can handle another year as announcer.
"It has been such an exciting, enjoyable, wonderful season — the big crowds in the ballpark, everybody is talking about the ball club, and I really respect, admire and love the management — so everything just fell into place," Scully said.
"I really still enjoy it immensely. My health is good, thank God. So why not? And my wife said, 'Why not?' as well."Just the thought of walking away from it to retirement — and looking out the window or something? It's just too good. As a baseball man, and someone who has always loved the game, the situation and the conditions are perfect."
