|Broadcast Legend Scully to Return in 2010
|BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Vin Scully says he will continue in the broadcast booth for the Los Angeles Dodgers through the 2010 season, then decide whether he will walk away.
He told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he still loves the job he's had with the team for 60 years, but that it's hard to be away from his wife during a long season.
Scully, who turns 82 later this month, and his wife Sandy celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary Tuesday. He was to speak to the Hollywood Radio & Television Society later in the day, while she stayed home because of a bad back.
Scully's tenure with the Dodgers is the longest of any current sports broadcaster with the same team. He calls all nine innings of the team's television broadcasts, while the first three innings of his games are simulcast on the radio.
