LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Vin Scully will again announce Los Angeles Dodgers  games in the 2015 season, which will be his unprecedented 66th season with the  team, it was announced tonight.

The announcement was made by a trio of Dodger players on Dodger  Stadium's Dodger Vision board before the start of the bottom of the second  inning of the game against the Atlanta Braves.

Pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu spoke first in Korean, followed by outfielder  Yasiel Puig in Spanish and finally infielder Justin Turner in English, drawing  huge cheers from the crowd.

``It is very difficult to say goodbye,'' the 86-year-old Scully said in  a statement released by the team. ``God willing I will be back next year.

``Over the years I have been blessed to have so many friends including  those that sit in the stands and listen as well as those at home, who listen  and watch. It is just too hard to say goodbye to all these friends. Naturally  there will come a time, when I will have to say goodbye, but I've soul-searched  and this is not the time.''

Scully has been announcing the team's games since 1950, when it was  based in Brooklyn. In 2015, he will call all nine innings of the team's  television broadcasts on the Time Warner Cable's SportsNet LA, with the first  three innings of each of his games simulcast on the radio.
