Vin Scully Steals the Pre-Game Ceremony for Game 2 of the World Series
“It’s time for Dodger baseball!”
It’s been 29 years since the Dodgers saw a World Series and for Game 2 the night gets even more iconic. During the pre-game ceremony, the public-address announcer told the crowd it was time for the first pitch, and Vin Scully walked out to a reception unlike any other. He mentioned Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Gil Hodges and Duke Snider and how they must be laughing their heads off watching him throw. Scully was really out there shooting bullets to his pals!
He asked for a catcher, and out walked 1981 World Series co-MVP Steve Yeager. Scully went into his windup, then grabbed his arm. The crowd started a “Scully! Scully” chant. Out walked Fernando Valenzuela to another huge ovation. He threw out the first ball. Scully then led the sellout crowd in saying “It’s time for Dodger baseball!” There’s really no way the game tops this.
