Vin Scully coming back for season #66 (video)

scully-wife-going-for-66.jpgVin Scully and the Dodgers decided to head off the usual late summer speculation and announce during Tuesday night's game that he will come back next year. That would make 66 seasons that Scully has broadcast Dodger games — every year in Los Angeles plus nine before that in Brooklyn. Tonight's announcement was choreographed in a video played on the stadium board before the bottom of the second inning. A standing ovation ensued while Scully waited graciously.

Here's the video.
