Vin Scully said Friday he will return for his 63rd season with the L.A. Dodgers to announce the games next year.

Scully said he will call all home games and select road games.

Scully's 62-year streak as Dodgers announcer is the longest of any team's current broadcaster.

He said after "a lot of soul searching and a few prayers" he decided to return.
