Facing elimination, the Dodgers were back home for Game 5 just hours after losing Game 4 as Zack Greinke was on the mound with a chance to send the series back to St. Louis.
Prior to each postseason home game, the Dodgers have had former players throw out first pitches and different celebrities announce “It’s Time For Dodger Baseball” before first pitch.
Today was no different as former ace Orel Hershiser threw out the first pitch, but it was actor Will Ferrell who actually announced the Dodger lineup. Unfortunately, TBS doesn’t switch to pre-game activities before games, but there is footage of Ferrell announcing the lineup and providing some comedy about each player announced.
Ferrell is also shown on the video board in a pre-taped video urging the crowd to get into it when the Dodger Stadium crowd is grounded to a hush.
Here’s the video of Ferrell introducing the players and his bold prediction before Game 5:
Here’s who Ferrell believes would be the winning pitcher (hint: he was right):
