While the Los Angeles Dodgers have lost their last two games heading into Friday’s matchup with the St. Louis Cardinals, they sit atop the National League West standings with a 1.5-game lead over the San Francisco Giants.
The season has been far from a walk in the park for the Dodgers, who have endured multiple injuries to key players, including losing Brandon McCarthy and Hyun-Jin Ryu to season-ending surgeries. As the team has pushed forward it’s been met by unwavering support from the fans.
The Dodgers became the first team to reach 1 million in home attendance this season, some of which Ben Lyons contributed to. Although a diehard New York Knicks fan, Lyons has often voiced his support for the Dodgers on social media and over ESPN LA 710AM radio airwaves.
Whether attending games on the East or West Coasts, Lyons enjoys living the ‘Real Fan Life.’ He’s regularly included such a hashtag in his tweets and during an appearance at the 2015 Sports Spectacular, he provided insight as to what that entails when going to a game at Dodger Stadium.
Lyons also touched on Clayton Kershaw’s seasons, the Dodgers’ World Series drought and the decision to trade Juan Uribe to the Atlanta Braves.
