Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrín announced Tuesday that he will retire as the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Spanish-language announcer after the 2022 season.

Jarrín decided to end his 64-year run with the Dodgers, the longest in the MLB, to travel and spend more time with his two sons and grandchildren.

Previously in February, his son Jorge also retired from broadcasting MLB games for the Dodgers. The two Jarríns were the first father and son duo to broadcast baseball on MLB Spanish-language radio.

“I’m grateful to the Dodgers, the best organization in baseball, for giving me the opportunity to do what I love most for 64 years,” the elder Jarrín, who turns 86 this December, said in a statement. “As much as I’ll miss my baseball family at Dodger Stadium and across the country, I’m looking forward to spending more time with my sons Jorge and Mauricio and my grandchildren and nurturing my love of travel.”

Jarrín started calling Dodgers games in 1959 and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998. He was the second Spanish-language announcer to receive the Ford C. Frick Award for his contribution to baseball broadcasting.

“Jaime was integral in introducing the Dodgers to Los Angeles and in giving a voice to the franchise’s Latino stars,” said team president and CEO Stan Kasten. “We’re going to cherish this last year with him on the broadcast and wish him the best in retirement.”

The team is due to announce plans to honor Jarrín for his services during the 2022 season.
