Dodgers: Justin Turner Spends His Birthday Helping Families In Need



I don’t know what I expect a World Series Champion to be doing on his birthday, but Justin Turner continues to impress. The Dodgers third baseman (though now a free agent) spent his 36th birthday working with the Dream Center of Los Angeles handing out meals for families in need.

Justin and his wife Courtney spent his special day handing out turkeys and meals all day long. Families in need participated in the turkey drive-thru giveaway in preparation for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. The Dodgers infielder was there to greet people arriving for their meals and to assist with the distribution. 

For Dodgers fans, this is just another example of the incredible work that Kourtney and Justin do for the community of Los Angeles. JT has worked with the Dodgers Foundation and the team all year long to help make the lives of the people in this city better. It’s hard to even recognize that he is a free agent for the moment because this will always feel like a place that welcomes him as one of their own. 

As of now, there has been no news or rumors of movement on JT resigning with the Dodgers. While many in Los Angeles expect him to remain with the team for the duration of his career, it’s not necessarily a forgone conclusion. LA has been involved in rumors for other third basemen, but that also wouldn’t take him out of consideration.

  1. Thatโ€™s why he should remain a Dodger. Great community person and representative of the team. He must be kept in the organization. He still has plenty left. 2 more years!
