Vin Scully is coming back.

Vin Scully is returning for his 64th season in 2013, the Dodgers announced. The 84-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster will keep the same schedule he kept this year, calling all home and road games in California and Arizona.

“The new ownership of the Dodgers has revitalized the city, the team, the fans and myself,” Scully said in a statement. “I am so convinced of their great purpose and leadership that I eagerly look forward to joining them in pursuit of the next Dodgers championship.”

Scully traveled with the Dodgers to broadcast games in Colorado last year, but cut that trip from his schedule this season. If all goes as planned next year — remember that Scully nearly missed the Dodgers’ entire first homestand of 2012 with a bad cold — he won’t be cutting back at all.

A press conference with Scully is scheduled for later this morning.
