Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrn will return to the broadcast booth for his 54th season in 2012, he announced during today’s broadcast on Univision Radio KTNQ 1020. He, unlike fellow Baseball Hall of Famer Vin Scully, continues to call all 162 games at home and on the road for the Spanish-language station.
“The Dodgers have invited me back for another season, so you will have to be by my side again,” Jarrn joked with analyst Fernando Valenzuela on air during the second inning. “I love what I do. It’s something I love and it brings me great joy to work alongside you and Pepe Yiguez. I’m pleased to serve the Spanish-language community and really share baseball with them – such a beautiful and pristine sport.”
Jarrn, inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998, started with the Dodgers in 1959, the year after they moved to L.A. from Brooklyn.
