Throughout the last few seasons, Scully has limited his travel to road games, including only those played in California and Arizona. Dodgers fans will welcome the news that Scully will be breaking from this in order to call the first official games of the 2014 Major League season.
"They asked me to go because they're the first games to be broadcast by Time Warner," Scully said. "So I said, 'Sure, I'll go.'"
To listen to Scully broadcast the games, however, Dodgers fans will have to endure the late night start due to the time difference. The games are slated to begin at 1 am PST. Scully, however, agreed to go in part because of the rest he will be able to get in between his broadcast responsibilities, saying:
"With ESPN doing the season opener in San Diego followed by an off day, so I'll get two days off and should be fine," he said. "I do love it, so I'll give it a shot."
There really is no better way to kick off the new season than by hearing Scully utter his iconic phrase, "It's time for Dodgers baseball."
