Vin Scully throws first pitch at Dodgers home opener

Harry How

LOS ANGELES -- Without question, the highlight of Friday's home opener was the ceremonial first pitch by Vin Scully, who was driven in from center field in a 1965 convertible.

Scully was escorted from the car to the mound by Magic Johnson, then greeted by his grandchildren, carrying a special mound for him to pitch from. Then, one by one, Dodgers legends came to greet Scully at home plate, introduced by guest public address announcer Ross Porter: Orel Hershiser, Fernando Valenzuela, Rick Monday, Ron Cey, Tommy Davis, Maury Wills, Don Newcombe, Tommy Lasorda and finally Sandy Koufax, who caught the pitch.
