There are few things in life better than a Dodgers World Series victory. After 32 years of waiting, I’m sure you can understand why. But the news coming out of Los Angeles today might rival that of the 2020 championship.
As there has been every year for as long as I can remember, there will be a World Series documentary for the 2020 season. The good news for Dodgers fans is that Vin Scully will sort of be coming out of retirement to narrate the documentary of the Los Angele championship. The legendary broadcaster confirmed that via his Twitter account on Wednesday morning.

Scully was of course the play-by-play announcer for decades in the Dodgers organization. He retired from the booth following the 2016 season after 67 wonderful years calling games in Brooklyn and Los Angeles.
While he has obviously been retired from calling games, it has not kept Scully from being involved with the Dodgers. The 92(almost 93) year old Scully has lent his voice to the team on several different occasions throughout the course of the pandemic year, including a tribute to Lakers’ legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna.
The Dodgers have won 7 World Series throughout their storied franchise, but this is the first without Vin as their announcer. MLB has noted that the documentary will be more than an hour worth of highlights and interviews from the 2020 World Series. It will be available for release on DVD/Blu-Ray on December 8th, with an extended version coming out February 2021.
