Since there are still a few days until the Opening Series games begin, the Los Angeles Dodgers are taking advantage of their surroundings in Australia. On their first full day Down Under ace Clayton Kershaw and Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully took a particular liking to some animals native to Australia.
On Tuesday, Kershaw celebrated his 26th birthday since it was Wednesday in Australia (His birthday is today in the US). He brought in another year with his wife, Ellen, along with a baby kangaroo via Dodgers twitter account:

Additionally, the MLB Gala took place on Tuesday night and the party wasn’t short of any Australian critters either. The Dodgers posted another picture of Scully and a koala:

It’s safe to say that the team is definitely enjoying their time Down Under and seem to be embracing the culture in Australia. Fans will continue to be able to follow the team’s adventures and hopefully leave Sydney with two wins.
