LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully is back in the booth at Dodger Stadium after missing five games because of a bad cold.

Scully returned for Sunday’s series finale between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres. The 84-year-old had broadcast the Dodgers’ first four games of the season at San Diego before getting sick last weekend.

Scully is in his 63rd season with the Dodgers, making him the longest tenured broadcaster in sports history.

Dressed in his usual suit jacket and tie, Scully appeared in good health and voice while chatting with reporters before the game.

He says he figured he should wait to return until it was a sunny day at the stadium.
