The Dodgers’ Gavin Lux is more than just a power-hitting second baseman. The team’s number one prospect is also quite the gamer, and he will be taking his talents to a league-wide tournament.
The gaming tournament is part of a charity effort that the league will be hosting. As part of the tournament, A Boys and Girls Club will receive $5,000 per player with an extra $25,000 going towards the winner’s club. One player from each team was selected to represent.
