Stick a Fork Vin Scully, He's Just about Done


Vin Scully has been calling LA Dodgers baseball games long before I was born (and I'm freaking old).

But the legendary announcer hinted that 2014 might be his last season behind the microphone.

Scully, 85, announced earlier this season he would return next year for his 65th season announcing Dodgers games. He began his career in Brooklyn, moving west with the Dodgers in 1958.

"I'm pretty well sure -- and I don't want to go back and forth with it -- but I'm looking to next year and thinking that should be about it," Scully told KPCC.

For this postseason, Scully is returning to his radio roots, announcing the first three and final three innings of the Dodgers' NLDS games against the Atlanta Braves. He has in the past threatened to retire the following year only to change his mind and return. During the regular season, Scully does not travel to games east of Denver.

Los Angeles' new mayor, Eric Garcetti, floated the idea of naming a street after Scully, but the broadcaster said he didn't feel worthy of such an honor.
