2017 World Series

Watch Vin Scully steal the show with this delightful start to Game 2

It wouldn't be a Dodgers World Series home game without longtime broadcaster Vin Scully, and to the delight of fans everywhere, he put on a show at the start of Game 2.

Scully retired in 2016 after 67 years, but he returned to Dodger Stadium to throw out the ceremonial first pitch Wednesday evening. "I've been practicing for a week," he told the crowd, who chanted, "Scully! Scully!" Before he could throw the ball, though, he needed a catcher, and Steve Yeager, who won the 1981 World Series with the Dodgers, ran onto the field. Catcher in place, Scully wound up, but froze. "I hurt my rotator cuff," he announced, clearly uninjured, but luckily for Scully, Fernando Valenzuela happened to be on hand, and came trotting out. Valenzuela has two World Series titles with the Dodgers under his belt, and maybe he left a little bit of luck for this year's team on the mound.
