Dodgers fans were given a chance to say goodbye to Bruce Bochy — and hello again to Vin Scully.
The legendary broadcaster lent his voice to a tribute video for the retiring Giants manager, who got cheered for perhaps the first and last time at Dodger Stadium.
Bochy has long been an enemy in those parts, a division rival since 1995, when he began managing the Padres. Scully noted that Bochy has the most visiting wins all time by an opposing manager at Dodger Stadium. All told, Bochy was 218-204 as a manager against the Dodgers entering Friday’s series opener.
Once the two-minute tribute video was over, Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts gave Bochy an autographed jersey of Sandy Koufax.
