Jaime Jarrin: A Broadcasting Legend

 

You know, it’s pretty incredible that Dodger fans are lucky enough to have a HOF broadcaster who has called the majority of their games over their 50 years in Los Angeles.  What’s even amazing is to have two broadcasters working for the same club.

Tonight, Jaime Jarrin is being honored for his 50 years of service as the Spanish voice of the Dodgers.  Today’s LA Times article is a great look into the life of this legend. 

I also happened to catch Charlie Steiner’s pre-game interview with Jarrin and learned that the Ecuadorian broadcaster started out calling boxing matches in LA, before taking on world championship fights all over the world.  Pretty cool stuff.

Congratulations Jaime!
