DBacks’ Bloomquist, Derek Hall Upset With Dodgers Pool Celebration

After the Dodgers clinched the NL West and celebrated in the clubhouse with beer and champagne, they took things a step further by racing out to right field and jumping in the pool.

Carl Crawford, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Brian Wilson and other Dodgers’ popped champagne and did cannonballs into the pool. However, Willie Bloomquist talked to Tyler Emerick of and voiced his displeasure:

The pool party comes on the heels of the Diamondbacks telling the Dodgers that they’d prefer them not come back onto the field after they’ve left as a way to get fans out of Chase Field.

If it wasn’t clear before, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks have a lot of bad blood; from their brawl earlier in the year to both teams getting warned today after the Dodgers hit five DBack players in the series. It sounds like there will be backlash from the DBack players and members of the organization, but how about not letting the Dodgers win on your turf?

Diamondbacks CEO Derek Hall weighed in on the pool party too according to Zach Buchanan of

I could call it disrespectful and classless, but they don’t have a beautiful pool at their old park and must have really wanted to see what one was like.

A shot at Dodger Stadium? Wow. It sounds like the Dodgers-Diamondbacks rivalry is just getting started as the two teams will have to wait until next season before getting things squared away.


In case you missed it, here’s the Dodgers pool celebration, PLUS Yasiel Puig’s celebration dance off!
