Yep, it’s official, the Dodgers are bringing back the whole broadcasting gang, in every booth, in every medium.
After Hall of Famers Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin said they would return next season, on Tuesday the Dodgers announced they were bringing everyone behind a microphone back.
That means Eric Collins and Steve Lyons on televised games outside the National League West, Charley Steiner and Rick Monday on the radio, and Fernando Valenzuela and Pepe Yniguez on Spanish-language broadcasts.
That’s eight for eight. Somebody around here had a good season.
The Dodgers had recently mailed out a survey, asking season-ticket holders to evaluate their broadcasters – including Scully, who is only the most popular person in the history of Los Angeles.
Those must have been some seriously strong marks.
