Vin Scully To Broadcast Dodger Games In 2016

His longevity is legendary, Vin Scully, in 2016. will spend one more season in the Los Angeles Dodger broadcast booth.  Scully will be entering his 67th year with the time.  He is a living link to baseball history.  When he began, probably many of Babe Ruth teammates were still active, of course, that was the American League and the Vin's team was in the National.  He has probably called every pitch of Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale, and Fernando Valenzuala (while Fernando was with the Dodgers). Jackie Robinson was still in the early stages of his career when Scully started and the Dodgers had not won a single world series at that time.  People born after Scully started have grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Scully started when the Dodgers were in Brooklyn and has been with them every year that they have played in LA. 
In addition to being there a long time, Scully is good, Ken Levine talks about what Scully brings to the booth here.
