Dodgers News: Vin Scully and Sandy Koufax share emotional pregame moment

It almost seems like heresy to think about Dodgers news, without thinking about legendary Los Angeles Dodgers play-by-play man Vin Scully.

Prior to Friday's home opener against the San Francisco Giants, the Los Angeles Dodgers threw Vin Scully one heck of a celebration to commemorate the American icon's 65th year as a Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully.

Scully was chauffeured into the stadium on the back of a 1965 Mustang convertible, in advance of Scully's ceremonial first pitch to Hall-of-Famer Sandy Koufax.

However at 86-years-old, Scully knew that throwing from the mound wasn't necessarily in the cards, so as he has done countless times before, the voice of the Dodgers improvised in an absolutely beautiful moment which you can see here on Vine.

As Scully said himself during the broadcast of the Dodgers / Giants game on Friday, "The more I thought about it, the more I thought 'no way is this weak left-handed hacker going to throw a ball to be caught by the great Sandy Koufax, the best lefthander that we ever saw."

Scully went on to thank the Dodgers in the sardonic way that only he can, jumping back into calling the game that he has helped to build and prosper wildly for the past six-and-a-half decades.
