Vin Scully began broadcasting the Dodger games in 1950 when the team still was located in Brooklyn. 2012 marks Scully's 63rd consecutive year in the Dodger broadcast booth. Scully is a native New Yorker and a graduate of Fordham.
When the Dodgers hired Vin prior to the 1950 season, Dodger broadcaster Red Barber became Vin's mentor. Vin Scully has been behind the microphone for all six World Championships the Dodgers have won(1955,1959, 1963,1965, 1981 and 1988).
Scully has received all kinds of awards and honors during his illustrious career. In 1982, Scully was inducted into the Broadcasters Wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
