Dodgers Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully made baseball fans everywhere happy when it was announced yesterday that he’d return for his 65th season in 2014.
Scully has seen his travel cut down to just calling games in California and Arizona, but he still remains the best broadcaster in sports. Thinking it was his last season, the Dodgers honored him with a bobblehead earlier this year against the Yankees and Vin described the moment this afternoon according to Bill Shaikin of the LA Times:
Vin Scully on fan ovation on his bobblehead night: “I was as close to crying as I have been in a long, long time.”

It was a great moment that was captured between innings as Vin waved to the crowd and in typical fashion, didn’t mention why the game was sold out while on the air.
Humble as always, Vin talked about how he’s his harshest critic and sometimes says to himself in the car, “”Some days I do okay. Some days I get in the car and say to myself, ‘You stink.”
While this season should be special for what the Dodgers do on the field, it’s great knowing that Vin will be back for next season at the very least.
