Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will return to the booth for his 65th baseball season in 2014.

Scully will again call all Los Angeles Dodgers home games, as well as road games in California and Arizona.

"The Dodgers are overjoyed to have Vin back with the team in 2014," said Dodgers chairman and owner Mark Walter in a statement Friday. "Vin IS Dodger baseball. The Dodgers, the sport of baseball and the city of Los Angeles are extremely fortunate to have him in our midst."

Scully, who started his professional baseball broadcasting career in 1950 with the Brooklyn Dodgers, has called three perfect games, 25 no-hitters, 25 World Series and 12 All-Star Games. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the excitement of this season and there is no way I could leave this truly remarkable team and our great fans," Scully said Friday. "With my wife Sandi's blessing, I've decided I'd like to come back and do it again next season. I love what the new ownership has brought to the team, and the energy provided by the fans, who have packed renovated Dodger Stadium. It reminds me that other than being home with my family, there is no place else I'd rather be."

The 85-year-old Scully will call all nine innings of Dodgers games on television and the first three innings of each of his games will be simulcast on radio.
