How Jaime Jarrín remembered Vin Scully

When Jaime Jarrín first moved to the U.S. in 1955, he had previous broadcast experience from working in his home country of Ecuador, but had never seen a baseball game.

He quickly found work as a reporter that same year at the radio station KWKW, serving Greater Los Angeles, and would work his way up to the position of news and sports director when the Dodgers moved to the city from Brooklyn.

Then-owner Walter O’Malley enlisted Jarrín to lead the team’s new Spanish-language broadcast station. He started in the 1959 season, and will retire at the end of this year, after 64 seasons on the call.

In that time, Jarrín developed a one-of-a-kind bond with fellow Dodgers broadcaster and legend, Vin Scully. 

Scully was eight years Jarrín’s senior, and also eight years on the job as the Dodgers’ radio play-by-play when the Ecuadorian was chosen to lend his voice for the Spanish broadcast. 

The first six seasons of Jarrín’s tenure were done directly translating the English broadcast done by Scully, but in the 58 after, both broadcasters were able to travel and work together.

Scully died on Aug. 2, 2022, and baseball fans everywhere went into mourning, none more than his longtime friend, Jaime.

In interviews since news of Scully’s death hit the airwaves, Jarrín’s had nothing but praise for his “brother,” as he told Fox 11 Los Angeles.

“He has been the architect of my career,” Jarrín continued.

In addition to teaching him the nuances of baseball in the broadcast booth, away from the diamond, Scully imparted wisdom, Jarrín returned with stories of travel, and both enjoyed eating at the best restaurants in whatever city they went with the Dodgers. 

“Vin Scully was something very special for me,” Jarrín told Telemundo 52. “He was my mentor, my teacher, my confidante, my professional inspiration, and above all, he was a tremendous friend.”

In 67 years with the Dodgers, Scully’s tenure lasted from 1950, when the team was still based in Brooklyn, to 2016. He retired at 88 years old. 

It’s the longest tenure in baseball history for an announcer with one team. Right behind him on that list? His friend Jaime, who after the tears of loss, said he looks forward to meeting Scully again one day.
