A person never forgets where he or she comes from. This notion resonates with Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Casey Fien.

Backstage Dodgers showcased the 32-year-old’s old stomping grounds of Buena Park, Calif as he introduces viewers to daughter Jordan and parents John and Ginny.

L.A. promoted him to the major leagues on May 28, where he has since made six appearances and has yet to allow an earned run.
