NOTE: Because the Dodgers have had so many different players step up and be the hero on any given night, I found it fitting to have a spinning wheel representing the hero of the game. Whether it be their stars like Kershaw, Kemp, Ethier, and AJ (yeah, he’s a star now, too), their role players like Juan Rivera, Tony Gwynn Jr, and Jerry Hairston Jr, and their Triple A guys like Elian Herrera, Jerry Sands, and Scott Van Slyke - there seems to be a random new hero every game. And that must be celebrated.
(Special thanks to Ed for designing the wheel to perfection!).
So here’s the first (of hopefully many) “Dodger Hero of the Game” posts:
…and a special honorable mention to Andre Ethier, who kept the Dodgers in the game with his 3 incredible catches. Honestly, without one of those 3 catches, the game would have had a very different ending.
