Vin Scully recently turned down a formal offer to be part of Fox’s broadcast of the All-Star Game in San Diego in July, SportsIllustrated.com reported today.
From Richard Deitsch’s story:
It took him 88 years, but Vin Scully finally made the cover of Sports Illustrated.
SI senior writer Tom Verducci profiles the Dodgers’ Hall of Fame broadcaster for this week’s issue of the magazine. Tim O’Brien did the cover art. You can read the story here.
(Also, note that the Rampaging Cubs are the last great American sports story. I’m moving to Canada. Nothing great for me to write here anymore.)
Vin Scully won’t be returning next year by all accounts, but the Dodgers’ radio broadcasts will have some continuity in 2017.
Rick Monday and Charley Steiner have signed new multi-year agreements, the organization announced today. Monday and Steiner have been working together for the past 12 seasons calling games on Dodgers radio broadcasts.
Here’s more from a team press release:
One day after Time Warner Cable announced it would reduce the rate it was charging AT&T/DirecTV to carry SportsNet LA, several people with a vested interest in the saga surrounding the Dodgers’ television channel voiced their opinion.
