Will Smith played his first year in Los Angeles during 2019, slugging 15 homeruns in just 54 games for the Dodgers. But his contributions off of the field are what’s making headlines this week.
Smith made a trip to his local University of Louisville hospital this week to drop off over 100 meals for the medical staff. That medical staff at the hospital is also partially responsible for treating COVID-19 patients. The Dodgers’ catcher also spent some time signing autographs and memorabilia for employees.
Smith grew up in Louisville and was drafted by the Dodgers in the first round of the 2016 draft out of the University of Louisville.
The generous act is just the latest in a string of kindness by Dodgers players. Mookie Betts bought an entire store full of shoppers their groceries earlier during quarantine and followed that up by handing out essentials last week. David Price won over fans by paying out minor league players $1000 each to make it through the month. And Justin Turner has been incredibly active in providing meals for the Dream Center in LA. You gotta love this team.
