Legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully was glad to have a bit of rain in drought-stricken California.
The Dodgers have not had a home game rained out since 2000.
This was the second unusual rain delay in the first two days of the MLB season.

The Marlins didn't even have a tarp to put over the field while the roof was being closed.
