Sandy Koufax and Vin Scully were spotted at Game 1 of the NLDS watching Clayton Kershaw

The postseason brings out many famous faces to watch October baseball. For example, LeBron James was cheering on the Indians Thursday during their 4-0 win over the Yankees. And on Friday night, during the NLDS Game 1 matchup presented by T-Mobile between the Dodgers and the D-backs, a pitching legend took in a ballgame:

Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax.


Perhaps you've heard of him. The three-time Cy Young Award winner with just as many Triple Crowns, a 1963 NL MVP, and of course, a spot in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Yep, he was at Dodger Stadium watching his former team play in the postseason while Clayton Kershaw, also a three-time Cy Young Award recipient, pitched. Right on cue, Kershaw struck out six of the five seven batters he faced. 

Vin Scully was also in attendance with his wife, Sandra, and perhaps received the loudest ovation of the night

You have to love the postseason. Kershaw got the win and so did the Dodgers, 9-5. Tune in tomorrow to watch NLDS Game 2 presented by T-Mobile at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT on TBS.
