Jaime Jarrin Inducted to Dodger Stadium Ring of Honor

Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Jaime Jarrin became the 12th inductee into the Dodger Stadium Ring of Honor Friday evening, recognized for his 60 years with the team and helping boost its following among Southern California’s Spanish-speaking population.

Longtime Dodger outfielder, coach and broadcaster Manny Mota removed the blue curtain covering a microphone with Jarrin’s name near the left field foul pole. It is next to the 10 jersey numbers that have been retired, which are displayed in numerical order. The microphone denoting Vin Scully’s place in the Ring of Honor is to the left of the microphone with Jarrin’s name.

“There is a saying — you should always count your blessings,” Jarrin told the crowd. “As I am standing here and look back on the past 60 years I see a lifetime filled with blessings, too many to count.

One team had two broadcasters cover it for 60+ years.
