    LOS ANGELES: After nearly 10,000 baseball commentaries, 25 World Series, 18 no-hitters and three perfect games, Vin Scully is finally hanging up the microphone. For 67 years, the 88-year-old broadcaster known affectionately as the “Voice of Summer” has captivated generations of fans as the play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, a job that began when the iconic franchise was based on the opposite side of the country in Brooklyn. On Sunday, Scully will call his final home game from his perch in the press box at Dodger Stadium, where he has been ever-present since the team moved into the venue in 1962. On October 2, he will take to the broadcast booth for the last time when he calls an inning of the Dodgers’ road game against the San Francisco Giants, the last game of the regular season.
