The Dodgers have six players participating in today’s MLB All-Star Game. Mookie Betts and Trea Turner earned start spots on the NL roster, and Clayton Kershaw will be taking the mound for the first All-Star Game start of his career. Tony Gonsolin, Tyler Anderson, and Freddie Freeman were named as reserves.
The All-Star Game festivities provide plenty of opportunities for tender moments and prior to today’s game, Dodgers fans were treated to a tender moment between Freddie Freeman and Clayton Kershaw’s sons, Charley and Charlie.

Charley Kershaw and Charlie Freeman are becoming fast friends. In a recent interview with The Athletic’s Fabian Ardaya, Kershaw talked about the budding friendship between the two youngsters.
“Charley, my son, is here with Charlie Freeman a lot. They are playing baseball together.”
Freddie credited the Little League kinship between their sons as part of the process of the Freeman’s settling into their Dodgers lives.
“You respect them and play against them for so long, and then you become teammates, and then I’ve tried to get my feet settled, and then he’s helping me get my feet settled. Then our kids are on the same team, so we’re outside of the field hanging out. So I think that was huge in the process of getting comfortable here.”
Freddie also remarked that his Charley was excited to have his dad named to another All-Star team. Not for the honor, but because it means his dad will once again be on the NL All-Star team in the next edition of MLB: The Show (quote via OCR’s Bill Plunkett).
“You should have seen his face.”
Turns out, Freddie is enjoying playing for the Dodgers, and Clayton Kershaw and his family are a big reason why.
