LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — Hall of Famer Vin Scully is coming back to the broadcast booth for an unprecedented 64th season, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced Sunday.

Dodger Chairman and Owner Mark Walter said the 84-year-old legendary sportscaster, who started with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1950, has signed a contract for next year.

“Vin is a treasure to the Dodgers, baseball and the city of Los Angeles and having him continuing his work in the broadcast booth next season means a great deal to all of us,” Walter said in a statement.

Scully will call all Dodgers home and road games in California and Arizona.

Scully said Sunday that the team’s new ownership has “revitalized the city, the team, the fans and myself.”

“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,” he said.

The Dodgers say Scully’s tenure is the longest of any broadcaster with any team. He calls all nine innings of the team’s TV broadcasts, while the first three innings of each of his games are simulcast on radio.

Scully has called three perfect games, 25 no-hitters, 25 World Series and 12 All-Star games.
