Pasadena, CA (Sports Network) - Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully has been named the Grand Marshal for the 2014 Tournament of Roses parade.
Scully, who just announced last month that he will return to the Dodgers' booth for a 65th season in 2014, will ride in the 125th Rose Parade on New Year's Day and will toss the coin at the start of the 100th Rose Bowl Game.
"I am deeply humbled and greatly honored to be the Grand Marshal of the 125th Rose Parade," said Scully in a statement Thursday. "I look forward to sharing this wonderful moment with my wife, Sandi, and the millions who will be watching."
Scully started his professional baseball broadcasting career in 1950 with the Brooklyn Dodgers and has called three perfect games, 25 no-hitters, 25 World Series and 12 All-Star Games. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982.
