"Forget it" if you thought legendary Los Angeles Dodgers play-by-play man Vin Scully would retire after the 2014 MLB season.
According to Ryan Walton of the Valley Bay News, the 86-year-old Scully will return for his 66th year with the Dodgers in 2015:
Breaking News at Dodger Stadium: VIN SCULLY IS BACK FOR 2015. #Dodgers

Scully's tenure with the Los Angeles Dodgers began in 1950, five years before the then-Brooklyn Dodgers would win their first World Series championship. That would be the only title the Dodgers would win during their time in New York.
Since then, Scully has been at the mic for five more Dodgers championships. His voice is now synonymous with the game of baseball, evoking a simplicity that seems to have been drained from most corners of the game during its evolution into big business.
The announcement of Scully's return was made at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday in the middle of the team's contest with the Atlanta Braves. As one would expect, it was met with a well-deserved standing ovation.
