Scully set for six innings of Dodgers' opener

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Dodgers Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will call six innings of the Dodgers' March 31 Opening Day game against the Giants on TalkRadio 790 KABC.

Scully will broadcast innings one through three and seven through nine, with Rick Monday and Charley Steiner working the middle three innings. First pitch is 5 p.m. PT for the game, which will be televised on ESPN. Generally, Scully does not work nationally televised games, but this exception is made because it's Opening Day.

Scully is entering his 62nd season as voice of the Dodgers and this will be his 54th home opener in Los Angeles.
