Will Smith, the young catcher for the World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers, recently joined Access SportsNet to talk about the World Series experience, nerves (or lack thereof), and celebrating.
It’s really been a dream come true. It’s been awesome. Yeah, I mean celebrating (with) the guys after the NLCS come down from 3-1 coming back from that and winning the World Series in six. You know it was joyful, it was a relief almost that we did it and it was over but you know it was just an awesome experience.

You know I get to come back home to Kentucky and see my family. They were there but I couldn’t actually see them ’cause the bubble but, got to see them, hug em, and yeah it’s been a fun week.
