Los Angeles, CA – Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will return to the broadcast booth for the Los Angeles Dodgers for a 62nd season in 2011, the team announced Sunday.

"I'm just honoured and humbled to continue my association with the Dodgers, which has been a major part of my life," said Scully.

Scully began his baseball broadcasting career in 1950 when the Dodgers played in Brooklyn, and since then has gone on to call three perfect games, 19 no- hitters, 25 World Series and 12 All-Star Games.

"I'm as thrilled as our fans that Vin will be returning," said Dodger owner Frank McCourt. "He is not only the greatest broadcaster of all time, but also a wonderful friend."

The 82-year-old New York native also announced Kirk Gibson's Game 1 homer in the 1988 World Series, Hank Aaron's record-setting 715th home run, Barry Bonds' record-breaking 71st, 72nd and 73rd home runs and the scoreless-inning streaks' of Dodger greats Don Drysdale and Orel Hershiser.

Scully was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982.
