Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has been labeled a diva by some as he’s been seen driving around LA in a Rolls Royce and hanging out with celebrities LeBron James, Snoop Dogg and Jay Z.
Puig has helped the Dodgers turn the season around as he’s a favorite for NL Rookie of the Year as the Dodgers are a season high 19 games above .500 and have a 7.5 game lead in the NL West.
Since he’s been with the Dodgers, not much has been revealed about Puig’s life and he told the Hollywood Reporter he wouldn’t be opposed to starring in a Biopic:
If anyone wants to do a movie about my life, give me a call, I’ll star in it, the 6-foot-3 star says with a roaring laugh.
As he’s taken the league by storm, Puig has also rubbed some people the wrong way with his bat flips and slide into home after a walk off home run against the Reds.
Regardless, it sounds like Puig has fully embraced life in LA and notes that Dodger Stadium and his downtown LA apartment are his two favorite places in the city.
With his play and the energy he’s infused into the team, Puig has become an overnight sensation in LA as the city has fully embraced everything about him. __________________________________________________________________________________________
