LOS ANGELES – Vin Scully said Saturday that 2016 will be his last season in the broadcast booth for the Los Angeles Dodgers, which would mark the end of his record 67-year tenure with the same franchise.
The Hall of Fame announcer turns 88 in November. The team revealed Friday night he would be back next year, but Scully took it a step further while speaking to the media a day later.
"I would say realistically — I don't want any headlines — but I would say next year would be the last one," he said, joking, "How much longer can you go fooling people?"
Scully has yet to discuss with the team how much he will work next season. He currently calls all nine innings of home games and road games in California and Arizona for Dodgers television.
