This morning it was announced that Vin Scully will broadcast four spring training games for the Dodgers in Arizona.
Hall of Fame broadcaster and Dodger fan favorite, Vin Scully is hitting the road to broadcast four games in Glendale, Arizona for the boys in blue.
Vin Scully is scheduled to broadcast four of the 16 games that will be aired by SportsNet LA during spring training. He also is set to broadcast the three Freeway Series games against the Angels when the Dodgers return home after the Cactus League games.
Today SportsNet LA also released the dates and times of the games they will be airing for those Dodger fans who have Time Warner Cable. The schedule is found below:
SportsNet LA will air spring training games every Saturday and Sunday on their station. Also this spring, Joe Davis is set to make his Dodgers broadcasting debut. The first game he is going to call for the Dodgers is March 19. Davis will be broadcasting in the booth along with Charley Steiner, Rick Monday, Orel Hershiser and Nomar Garciaparra.
Although it has not been officially confirmed, it is likely that Joe Davis will take over Vin Scully’s broadcasting position following this season when Scully retires.
One of the games Vin Scully will be calling is a split squad against the Giants.
Even though it is a sad time, knowing that this is Scully’s final season with the Dodgers, it only makes him appearing in some spring training games all the more exciting. It is hard to believe this is Scully’s last season. He has not only shaped Dodgers history, but baseball’s history. It is a privilege to have had him in the broadcasting booth all these years and he is going to be sorely missed following this season. For now, we get to look forward to him calling some spring training games, the Freeway Series and home games throughout the year.
