Dreaming back to a time when there was still baseball and sports and we were allowed outside, the Dodgers were at Camelback Ranch gearing up for a highly anticipated 2020 season.
And in the case of this article (and video), “gearing up” is the most accurate way of describing it.
Moreover, during camp, Wilson Baseball made its annual pilgrimage to visit the Dodgers during spring training… and it was fun to watch.
Here’s more from the video description:
The stars come out at Wilson Glove Day. Former MVP Mookie Betts (A2K MB50 GM) is ready for the bright lights in his first season with Los Angeles. Three-time Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw (A2000 CK22) already got the nod for Opening Day with one goal in mind: getting over the hump and bringing a title back to LA for the first time since 1988. Standout prospect Gavin Lux (A2K 1786), infielder Max Muncy (A2K 1613/A2K 1721) and catcher Austin Barnes (Custom A2000 1790) are poised to leave their mark on the lineup while Joe Kelly (Custom A2K D33/A2K B2) and Ross Stripling (Custom A2000 B125) are ready to blow away anyone who stands in against them with their custom Wilson gloves by their side.
While those numbers may not mean much to the common fan, they mean everything to the individual player. We see Muncy get his new gloves for first and second base duty. Stripling and Barnes each get a pair of mitts to cycle through. And most importantly, Kershaw’s “A2000 CK22” gets admired by all as it enters its 12th season of action.
The pattern chosen by Mookie Betts really stands out ahead of his first season with Los Angeles, but the real question from this video is who is Smoochie. B? It looks like it belongs to reliever Joe Kelly, but that’s not 100% confirmed.
