Play associated audio
Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers announcer Vin Scully is widely considered the greatest sportscaster of all time. He's certainly the longest-tenured — he turns 86 in November — and yet, by all accounts he still has his fastball. He recently announced that he would return for a 65th season next year, in part because he's energized by the success of the team. With the Dodgers in the playoffs for the first time in four years, many fans will be muting the TV so they can hear Scully, who will only be calling games in his one-man booth on the radio.
