MLB announced Wednesday that longtime Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully will narrate a documentary about the team's 2020 World Series championship season.

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times noted it's the fifth time Scully, who retired from play-by-play duties after the 2016 season, will lend his voice to the commemorative film. He previously did so after the Dodgers' titles in 1959, 1963, 1965 and 1981.

This year's will include over an hour of highlights and interviews about L.A.'s season, which culminated with a six-game triumph over the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series.

"It was 32 years since the Dodgers won a World Series and the seventh in the history of the organization, bringing great joy to their fans and the city of Los Angeles in particular," Scully said in a statement. "This is their winning story against the Tampa Bay Rays, and it's an honor for me to recount just how they did it."

Although Scully is no longer a daily presence in the Dodgers broadcast booth, a role he'd filled since 1950, he's continued to bestow upon fans his musings about baseball and all other topics via his Twitter account:

The Dodgers' championship documentary will be available Dec. 8.
