Vin Scully Won’t Call Any Dodgers Postseason Games

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — There’s a good chance the Dodgers could make the playoffs but no chance we will have extra broadcasts to see and hear the legendary Vin Scully.

The voice of Dodger baseball announced Tuesday he will call his final game on Oct. 2 in San Francisco, regardless if the team makes the postseason, according to MLB.com.

Scully will be honored for his remarkable 67-year career the weekend of Sept. 23-25 and will call his final game in the Dodger Stadium booth that Sunday when L.A. hosts Colorado.

Fans will get more options to see Scully on-air in his final days on the job than are currently available.

Thousands of Dodgers fans in Los Angeles have been prevented from hearing Scully on TV the last two seasons because of an ongoing dispute between Time Warner Cable, which carries the channel owned by the team, and other pay TV providers. The team and Time Warner had used Scully’s farewell as a ploy to end the disagreement to no avail.

Charter said it will televise six games, including the Dodgers’ final regular-season road series against the rival San Francisco Giants.

Charter customers already receive access to SportsNet LA, the team’s channel.

Charter will air the Sept. 23 game against the Rockies featuring a live pregame ceremony honoring Scully. Games on Sept. 24 and 25 against the Rockies will also be shown.

SportsNetLA and KTLA will simulcast the Dodgers’ three-game visit to San Francisco on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1-2, with the 88-year-old broadcaster behind the mic for the series.
