As we all re-watch a lot of old games during this time of no new baseball, we wax nostalgic over moment after moment and memory after memory when it comes to Dodger baseball. In fact, the Dodgers official YouTube channel got in on the action and helped package up a highlight reel from the Red Dream.
We may not all quite realize it now, but Justin Turner is slowly cementing himself as one of the greats in Dodger history. With that, it can be an arduous task to curate a top-4 list of highlight moments.
In the opinion of this writer, the Dodgers’ media team did a pretty good job.
So many great cracks of the bat…
The third baseman is in the final year of his 4-year contract inked in the 2016 offseason. Moreover, Turner expressed a hope and even expectation that this won’t be the end in blue.

Back to the highlights, there was an online voting component to this reel. To be fair, when put to a vote, most of these moments never stood a chance after that leadoff clip. And, sure enough, that’s the far and away winner of the vote on the Dodgers’ official Twitter.
"Take a bow, @redturn2!"
Which of these four memorable moments from JT is your favorite?

That JT 3-run walk off home run 29-years to the day after Kirk Gibson’s famous 1988 World Series shot is pretty hard to top (the only thing missing from all that is a World Series win in 2017…), so of course it’s a winner in a landslide.
So I guess the ask here is what’s your second favorite Justin Turner moment? Let us know in the comments below!
