This congruent conflation mixes up “right from the start” and “right off the bat”, both meaning to do something immediately.  A big thanks to Jake Holdcroft who heard this one spoken by a sportscaster during a Pittsburgh Penguins game intermission.   See a similar malaphor – “right out of the bat” , posted October 27, 2012.
