The Dodgers have fielded many great teams over their long and illustrious history with many great players having donned the iconic uniform. One of those players was outfielder Andre Ethier. The last time he wore a Dodger uniform was in 2017, during the World Series that prevented LA from glory. Since then, he’s been around the game in a limited capacity, usually lending his thoughts to AM 570 LA Sports.
Mr. Clutch himself recently joined David Vassegh on AM 570 LA Sports to reminisce about his time playing with the Dodgers. While talking to Vassegh, Ethier mentioned how he’s missed being with his former teammates including Matt Kemp, Russell Martin, and James Loney.
“I can’t wait till the day we are back in uniform together walking around Camelback Ranch talking about old times.”
Ethier specially mentioned playing with his former outfield mate Matt Kemp and in the mid to late 2000s.
Both former Dodgers were beloved in Los Angeles during their careers and for good reason. They both created a lot of memorable moments on the field and at the plate. Ethier was a member of the franchise from 2006-2017 while Matt Kemp was a Dodger from 2006-14 and again in 2018.
With all the experience and stories they have, it wouldn’t hurt to see them back in Dodger blue mentoring the next generation of Dodgers. Whether it be in a coaching role, or just as an advisor during Spring Training, the organization needs to make it happen. The fans will demand it!
