Vin Scully’s entire final broadcast Sunday in San Francisco will be simulcast on SportsNet LA, KTLA and AM 570 LA Sports, meaning that radio listeners will hear Scully from start to finish.

“We wanted to make sure that all of Vin’s fans are able to share in his final Dodger broadcast of an incredible 67-year Hall of Fame career,” Dodger executive vice president and chief marketing officer Lon Rosen said.  “We want to thank our partner, IHeartMedia, Charley Steiner, Rick Monday and Vin for making this possible for all our viewers and listeners.”

Said IHeartMedia senior vice president of sports Don Martin: “The Dodgers, IHeartMedia and KLAC all came together and thought it would be only fitting that we simulcast Vin Scully’s final broadcast to the Dodgers Network on Sunday from San Francisco. We also want to thank Dodger broadcasters Charley Steiner and Rick Monday, who also felt strongly that our listeners should be able to hear Vin’s final call of his unbelievable 67-year career.”

Vin is broadcasting three more games with the Dodgers, all in San Francisco: Friday at 7:15 p.m., Saturday at 1:05 p.m. and Sunday at 12:05 p.m. The Giants have planned a tribute for Vin (who has said his love of baseball was cemented exactly 80 years before, when he learned about a World Series loss by the Giants) and will also simulcast his call of the third inning Sunday on KNBR 680 AM and CSN Bay Area.

Perhaps I’d feel a bit better about Lon Rosen’s comments if I could see more than just these games and if Ross Porter had been at the celebration?

I doubt if the NorCal viewers will get to see it. Too close to Giants land

Will it be on MLB Network?

PLEEEASE, MLB, BROADCAST THE FULL GAME WITH VIN COMMENTATING — THAT WAY, ALL BASEBALL/VIN SCULLY FANS ACROSS AMERICA (not just those in Cali, or those with access to these radio stations) CAN SHARE IN THIS HISTORIC EVENT. WE KNOW YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN!

I hope they have an ~Away~ telecast on MLB Extra innings because I’d rather watch that than an MLB.TV telecast on my computer, because I have less trouble with it.
Of course, if it’s necessary I’ll watch the game on MLB.TV.
I’ve been listing to Vin since his broadcast days in Brooklyn.
