Jarrín serves as a Spanish language announcer for the Dodgers. He's been broadcasting for the team since 1959. Following Vin Scully's retirement in 2016, Jarrín became the longest-tenured broadcaster in baseball.
Jaime Jarrín is a Hall of Famer
Jarrín has notched a number of accomplishments over his legendary career. He won the Ford C. Frick Award in 1998, and was also inducted into the California Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame and the Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum.
In 2018, the Dodgers made Jarrín the 12th entrant in the team's Ring of Honor. Scully spoke at Jarrín's ceremony, calling him "one of the nicest men I’ve ever met."
