Vin Scully is not the only beloved Dodgers Hall of Fame announcer planning on returning next season. The Dodgers announced Friday that Jaime Jarrin would be back for a 55th season next year as the team's lead Spanish-language broadcaster. Jarrin agreed to a three-year contract extension. Jarrin is the second-longest tenured broadcaster in Major League Baseball, trailing only Scully, who announced Sunday he would return next year for his 64th consecutive season. A native of Ecuador, Jarrin began broadcasting Dodgers games in 1959, the year the Dodgers won their first World Series in Los Angeles.

Saturday night at a black-tie dinner in Chicago, a Dodgers broadcaster will go into the Hall of Fame and it won't be Vin Scully. A shocker? No. Scully is already there. If there is a Hall of Fame that has any connection whatsoever to broadcasting and Scully isn't in it, it's a lousy Hall of Fame. Now, Charley Steiner will be joining him. That means, next year, when fans tune in to Dodgers' baseball, they will be informed and entertained by three Hall of Famers. That's far from the norm, maybe a first, and should make Dodgers fans proud.

Jaime Jarrin, the Spanish-language voice of the Dodgers for 31 years, was hospitalized in fair condition today after an automobile accident. Jarrin, 56, was in the intensive care unit with several internal injuries, said Judy Peirce, spokeswoman for Indian River Memorial Hospital. Jarrin calls play-by-play on KWKW in Los Angeles, the flagship of the Dodgers' Spanish radio network. He has covered the team since 1959 and became the No. 1 man in the booth in 1973.

ST. LOUIS -- Only a day removed from starting in his first game in nearly a month, outfielder Andre Ethier was back on the Dodgers bench Saturday for Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. Not only was the lower part of Ethier's left leg hurting again, the rest of his body was sore. Ethier, who didn't have the luxury of playing on a minor league rehabilitation assignment before his return, played nearly the entire game Friday night. He was removed as part of a double switch in the 13th inning.

You would have to give your memory a serious workout to recall the last time Jaime Jarrin, the longtime Spanish-language broadcaster, missed calling the action during a regular season Dodger game before this year. But that all changed three months ago for the man who was thrust into the national spotlight as the interpreter for Fernando Valenzuela when the Mexican pitcher was the center of the Fernandomania craze in 1981.

Jaime Jarrin sits up in his hospital bed and wonders. Why does he always have to be so cooperative? When those people from the Los Angeles advertising agency called him in Vero Beach, Fla., March 26, asking him to cut a radio commercial in an hour, why didn't he say no? It was an impossible task. He would have to rush from the Dodgertown dining room at 8 p.m, buy a blank reel-to-reel tape, drive back to Dodgertown, cut the commercial and hand it to a messenger by 9. So why did he say yes?

Sunday the Dodgers will play the Cubs, and of course the game will be televised. Twice. The Dodgers and Prime Ticket and FS West are combining to offer English- and Spanish-language broadcasts at 1 p.m. It's a great idea that is overdue. Lucky Los Angeles fans can choose between two of the best baseball voices in the world, Hall of Fame broadcasters Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin. Fox will provide three extra cameramen, all of them bilingual, to illustrate with video any points that Jarrin and analysts Fernando Valenzuela and Pepe Yniguez might make in Spanish.

ST. LOUIS -- The Dodgers do not plan to bring Steve Lyons and Eric Collins back to their broadcast team next year. Lyons had worked on the Dodgers' television broadcasts for nine years, most recently as an analyst on road games and on pregame and postgame shows. Collins, with the Dodgers for five years, had served as the play-by-play voice on televised games outside California and Arizona -- that is, the games to which Vin Scully did not travel. Lyons, a former major leaguer, announced news of his dismissal on Saturday via Twitter.

The regular season is almost over and Carl Crawford is still healthy. "I'm just grateful," Crawford said. This time last year, Crawford was recovering from reconstructive elbow surgery. "Just to be able play baseball again, to be able to do what I've done all my life, not having to worry about getting hurt," Crawford said. Crawford played in his 106th game Thursday.

PEORIA, Ariz. -- Jaime Jarrin pioneered the radio broadcasting of major league baseball in Spanish with the Dodgers more than 50 years ago -- and he earned a place in the Hall of Fame as a result. On Thursday his son Jorge will make his radio play-by-play debut -- in English -- when the Dodgers meet the Texas Rangers at Camelback Ranch. Following a famous dad in the same profession has tripped up many a baseball player -- as well as a few broadcasters. But Jarrin said he's ready to take his lumps as he learns the ropes.

Fernandomania was an original. All individual sports manias were borne from the knee of Fernando Valenzuela. Valenzuela, of course, was not just a remarkable sensation for the Dodgers, but a huge favorite back in his native Mexico. He played in the Mexican winter leagues dating to the late '70s. And now he's going to be honored there. On Sunday, Valenzuela will be inducted into the Caribbean Baseball Hall of Fame in a ceremony at Hermosillo, Mexico, at the Universidad Sonora.

Once they were kings here. They ruled with a heavy hand. They dominated and were not shy about letting it be known. Only now it's all turned around. Now the Dodgers come to their home ballpark and almost cower at their own shadow. The Dodgers were an impressive 27-15 at home through the All-Star break. Since the break, they are 8-15 at Dodger Stadium. They have lost all three home stands and now have started 0-2 on their current seven-game stop. There is no explaining it, no rational way to analyze such a dramatic turnaround.

With the Dodgers continuing to build on the fantastic foundation laid by Frank McCourt , I took advantage of an opportunity to chat with Magic on Tuesday. Yeah, he was here. Shocker, I know. The Dodgers said he would meet the media in the dugout at 4 p.m. It was pretty clever on their part as I was sitting in the dugout around 3:45 waiting while Magic was already talking to the media outside the Dodgers' clubhouse. When I got word he was gushing elsewhere, I rushed over because, as you know, he says the darnedest things.
