LOS ANGELES (AP) Vin Scully will return for a record 67th season in the broadcast booth for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The news was revealed in the second inning of Friday night's game against the Chicago Cubs.

Late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel appeared on the Dodger Stadium video board and told the crowd via cue cards without uttering a sound.

His last card read: ''God bless us everyone.''

The 87-year-old Scully stood up and waved from his booth as the crowd cheered.

The Hall of Fame announcer continues to enjoy describing the action on the field. His consecutive years of service make him the longest-tenured broadcaster with one team in sports history.
