Two of the greatest pitchers in MLB history managed to get Game 4 of the World Series started on Saturday night.
Dodgers legend Kirk Gibson teamed up with a former counterpart, Red Sox stud pitcher Dennis Eckersley, and the two combined forces to create a pretty awesome ceremonial first pitch.
Gibson threw a strike to Eckersley at home plate before Game 4 at Dodger Stadium began, and it was pretty awesome.
Eck and Kirk reunite 30 years later.

Eckersley later posted a photo showing the two of them watching the game from their seats.

The two didn’t exactly recreate the magic from Game 1 of the 1988 World Series, but they did their best to bring the ballpark to life 30 years later.
