Everything started with legendary ex-broadcaster Vin Scully, who teased doing the honors himself. Scully brought out former Dodgers catcher Steve Yeager. He then ceded that he wouldn't be able to toss out the first pitch. Instead, Scully called to the "bullpen" for "a lefty." That brought Fernando Valenzuela to the mound, and he did the honors.
Afterward Scully uttered his trademark line: "It's time for Dodger baseball."
And with that, Game 2 of the 2017 World Series began.
