Indeed – in back to back games – a fan has ran onto the field to attempt to greet Cody Bellinger. Verdugo weighed in on what he thinks of the new trend that has led to some hysteria. Furthermore, it sounds like Verdugo is getting a few smiles out of his teammate.
“I’m laughing. You have to give these girls a side hug or something she’s about get arrested. Make it worth it. His after reaction is always the best.”
It’s always interesting to hear a young big league player talk about their biggest adjustments to playing at the highest level. Therefore, Verdugo was asked that question.
“Would really just be kind of sticking with my routine. That’s been the biggest thing for me always. Playing every day, you get used to it – your body gets used to it. Day in, day out when I go to the field I want to have a pretty good idea of where I’m at before I enter that game. Really, it’s just been my routine.”
Finally, this player is more than just on the right path to a nice career. Let’s not forget that days ago, Andrew Friedman remarked that Verdugo’s baseball instincts were as high as he’s ever seen. Obviously, this carries a lot of weight when someone in that position gives praise in that manner.
It’s great to hear that Verdugo is getting the hang of big league life, and he’s having a little fun along the way.
