Post-Game 8 Thread: Vin Says It All

Vin Scully throws out the ceremonial first pitch before the Dodgers' home opener.

Joe Torre caught Vin's pitch.


"So for the Dodgers and Orlando Hudson, this was a perfect day. Everything they did was on the brilliant side, with Hudson hitting for the cycle, with Billingsley striking out 11 without a walk. For the Dodgers, hammering their rivals from the north on 15 hits, 11-1. Everybody in the starting lineup had at least one hit, and there were home runs in the game by Hudson, and Ethier hit two of 'em....Smiles all around before a record-breaking crowd of fifty-seven thousand and—Manny's number—ninety-nine."
—Vin Scully

Of course, Vin was too modest to remind us that he threw out the first pitch. As he said, this was a perfect day.

Awsome game. I wish I had been there. I really hope we see more of this great play. Last weeks games in San Diego really were depressing.
