In LA it might be the only story that will get more cheers than the Dodgers‘ current eye-opening summer streak — they’re now 23 games above .500 and running away from the rest of the NL West. The team said today that play-by-play man Vin Scully will return for duty in 2014. He is 85. The Hall of Famer and LA icon will continue to call all Dodgers home games next season as well as road games in California and Arizona; he will do all nine innings of Time Warner SportsNet LA broadcasts beginning next year, with the first three innings simulcast on radio. Scully had announced plans to retire for good in 2010 but has been making year-to-year decisions about staying in the booth ever since.
