Vin Scully to Broadcast, Announce, Playoff Games Including World Series

No one can be compared to the Great Vin Scully with the impressive resume he has build during his 64 year tenure with the Brooklyn / Los Angeles Dodgers that include 25 World Series, three perfect games, 19 no-hitters and 12 All-Star Games. Scully's memorable moments behind the microphone include his call of the Brooklyn Dodgers' only championship in 1955, Don Larsen's perfect game in the '56 World Series, Kirk Gibson's walk-off home run in the '88 World Series, Hank Aaron's record-setting 715th home run, Sandy Koufax's four no-hitters -- including a perfect game -- and the scoreless-innings streaks of Dodgers greats Don Drysdale and Orel Hershiser. In 2009, Scully was inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame and was named Top Sportscaster of All-Time by the American Sportscasters Association. In '08, he was inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame and the California Sports Hall of Fame.

Throughout his prestigious broadcasting career, Scully has received numerous awards, including being named the California Sports Broadcaster of the Year 29 times by the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association; in 2000, Scully was voted as Sportscaster of the 20th Century by more than 500 national members of the American Sportscasters Association.

According to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Scully's years of service are believed to be the longest tenure of any broadcaster in sports history. Vin Scully has been the voice and the face of the organization since it arrived to Los Angeles. In Los Angeles, Scully has called Dodgers World Series championships in 1959, '63, '65, '81 and '88, and he was elected the top sportscaster of the 20th century by the nonprofit American Sportscasters Association. You See Vin Scully has been a big part of every great Dodger moment and it would a crying shame, a crime to deprive the fans of not having him during this memorable run that the Los Angeles Dodgers are currently in. Vin Scully has proven himself and no one would do a better job then him, I ask that you please allow him to Call Dodger Playoff Games Including the 2013 World Series on National Television.
