Dodgers: Cody Bellinger Makes Fan’s Night At Spring Training

Cody Bellinger finds himself in the middle of an up and down 2019 Spring Training campaign. Hovering around the .300 mark with a few extra base hits, he’s finding his way.

Moreover, Bellinger had a mishap before the game at Camelback Ranch the other night. Equally important – he found a way to make a lifelong memory for a fan.

The following video went viral after Bellinger made amends with the fan he errantly struck with a baseball during warm-ups.

Furthermore, Bellinger went to the trouble of walking the ball over to the fan and signing it for her.

Aside from being a star in many of the eyes of the fans – the Dodgers have an awareness of Bellinger’s importance to the 2019 club. Alden Gonzalez wrote a piece for ESPN that highlights this aspect of the player’s ceiling. Definitely, it’s worth your time to read if you missed it.

The big quote to pull out of the article is from manager Dave Roberts.

“Going forward,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, “Cody’s gotta be our guy.”

While performance in spring training is one thing, how you treat your fans is another. Now, Bellinger seems focused on both. In turn, the payoff could be huge for the 2019 version of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

  1. Cody has the smile, persona, and game to be a Dodger Stalwart. As he matures, I think he’ll get even more likable. And likability is a huge plus in sports. A superstar? Doubtful, there are very few. But if he stays on path, keeps his nose clean and doesn’t do anything stupid like so many pro athletes do, he could be a very successful Dodger for a long time. He and Cory are franchise foundational. Go Blue!
