Countdown to Vin Scully: three weeks.
The Dodgers confirmed Tuesday what Scully told The Times' Steve Dilbeck last week: The Hall of Fame announcer will travel to Arizona to call the first broadcast on the Dodgers' new SportsNet LA channel.
The channel launches Feb. 25. The Dodgers' first Cactus League game is Feb. 26, against the Arizona Diamondbacks at noon PST.
"It is an incredible honor to have the remarkable opportunity to call the very first game on the Dodger network,” Scully said in a statement.
