The Dodgers are reigning World Series champions. And while the celebrations and hardware from the 2020 playoff run are all done with, there was still one more order of business to take care of. That was getting their championship ring to Cooperstown.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame museum announced today that the Dodgers 2020 World Series ring is now on display. So while the focus is on this year and getting back into first place in the NL West, it’s still cool to know that the win is forever enshrined.
The Dodgers World Series ring consists of approximately 222 round diamonds, 10 princess-cut diamonds, 45 custom-cut genuine sapphires, and eight round genuine sapphires. It is truly a work of art.

The Dodgers are taking one more step to rebuild their healthy lineup this week. The team announced that they were activating Jimmy Nelson and AJ Pollock ahead of the series in Atlanta this weekend. Nelson had been down for 2 weeks with some arm soreness while Pollock was down with a bad hamstring strain.
Will Smith played a position other than catcher for the first time at the big league level on Wednesday. The Dodgers slid him over to the hot corner in a blowout win over the Cardinals, and he cleanly fielded one ball hit to him. Unfortunately, Will couldn’t make an accurate throw and ended up with an error on the play. Will he make the transition over there in his career? Probably not. But it always pays to be versatile.
