October baseball brings out the biggest stars, but there was an unexpected sighting during Wednesday night’s Wild Card matchup between the Dodgers and Cardinals. In a true sign of friendship, the Washington Nationals’ young star Juan Soto was seen supporting his former teammates during their playoff opener, with some exceptions, of course.
The former World Series Champ showed up to the game in style, not only rocking his 2019 World Series ring but also repping what can now be considered a vintage Trea Turner Nationals jersey.

The All-Star outfielder had one of the best seats in the house, from which he cheered on another former teammate in Max Scherzer.

This would usually be the place where wild conspiracy theories of Soto-to-LA would go, but this is just a genuinely awesome moment from one of baseball’s best players. I mean, when was the last time that you saw another player fly across the country to be a regular, everyday fan? It was awesome to see, and Soto definitely seemed to be enjoying the show that his teammates were putting on.

While Juan Soto in a Dodgers jersey one day is fun to dream about, let’s just enjoy what was one of the coolest gestures in baseball this season.
