Dodgers Players Dress Up in Costumes on Travel Day

Just when you think they can’t get any better, they go and do this!

As promised, following the 1-0 win in San Diego to sweep the Padres; the Dodgers traveled to San Francisco in full costumes.

However – if you thought that the Dodgers would take this team event that included every staff member – you were wrong. Let’s take a look at what the team came up with.


Mike Levy as Ken Rosenthal

First up we have producer Mike Levy, who should now be a household name in costumers. Indeed, he cleans up as a better Ken Rosenthal then Ken himself some might argue.

Hyun-Jin Ryu as Ryu Shark

While Hyun-Jin Ryu has a shot at an NL Cy Young Award in a little over a month – he also has the opportunity to be the first pitcher to win that award in history and dress as a shark in the same season. Moreover – if you have kids – you will know this song even if you don’t know why this song exists. Still, it doesn’t matter when you see a video like this one.

Joe Kelly and Cody Bellinger as Lebron James’ Taco Tuesday

While I should have known Cody Bellinger wouldn’t simply go quietly into the night as Batman or Joker, I didn’t think he would put together something like this. Equally important, Joe Kelly plays a great co-star role here as the taco to ‘King James’ Taco Tuesday. Clearly, Bellinger follows Lebron James on Instagram and is a fan of the videos (look them up).

Thursday Night Football Connection

With the Philadelphia Eagles visiting the Packers in Green Bay, some of the boys were inspired to dress up in the full NFL uni’s from those teams. However, Max Muncy appears to have drawn the short straw.

The Best of the Rest

Without question, someone is looking at these tonight and dying of laughter. For instance, check out my personal favorite Tony Gonsolin as Lieutenant Dan and Ross Stripling as Forrest Gump.

Furthermore, there’s plenty going on here. In general, I can’t stand clowns and I don’t know why. Still, does Dustin May not make for the most Pennywise you have ever seen in your life?

Kiké Hernandez and step-dad David Freese make fine CDT employees. The pair was sure to catch any potential PED user on the spot.

Jaime Jarrin as Mike Brito likely takes my second place, this is just great work. And Pedro Baez as Black Panther shows a lighter side of La Mula.

How about Dustin May one more time along with Will Smith?

Finally, we end with the Dodgers getting off the team flight. One by one – they roll into San Francisco as something else and at the same time – exactly themselves.

Which costume was your favorite? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t sell Rastafarian Rich Hill short.

Clint lives in Ohio, and played collegiate baseball. He loves the Dodgers due to his first memories of Chavez Ravine when he was nine years old. The voice of Vin Scully has been a staple in his life since he was a kid. No amount of baseball talk is ever enough, and he wishes the regular season was year round. He has written about baseball online since 2007.

    • Are you serious? He’s dressed as a fictional character from a very popular movie. Are you offended by the movie too? Was Gary Sinise disrespectful when he portrayed said disabled war veteran on the big screen?

    • He didn’t dress a disabled war veteran, he dressed as a movie character that happened to be a disabled war veteran. Lt. Dan from Forrest Gump. Lt. Dan changed actor Gary Sinise’s life. His performance as a wounded warrior connected him to real-life veterans, and Sinise has become one of the highest-profile supporters of military and veteran causes. His rock combo The Lt. Dan Band has entertained troops around the world, and the Gary Sinise Foundation provides valuable services to men and women all over the country.

      I’m a veteran and found the costume amusing and a good call back to a great movie. Hardly pathetic. Good for a laugh, you could probably use more that.

    • PATHETIC? Really? The character was not real. Do you really think that the movie was based on a real story?

    • Have you seriously not seen Forrest Gump? You could probably stream it for free tonight and calm the hell down.

  1. I don’t know who is dressing as a veteran in the wheelchair. But I agree with Ed above that it is disrespectful. I am a veteran and know veterans who have been wounded.
    And for NODH to say snowflake. That’s no different than when we used to be called names and spit on. Nothing has changed.

    • Clint Evans,

      I’ve been a Dodger fan for over 60 years. I don’t know how to contact the Dodgers but how about sending my comments to the Dodgers and Tony Gonsolin (if that’s who’s in the wheelchair). Very disrespectful. He’s young and probably doesn’t understand.

      “I don’t know who is dressing as a veteran in the wheelchair. But I agree with Ed above that it is disrespectful. I am a veteran and know veterans who have been wounded.
      And for NODH to say snowflake. That’s no different than when we used to be called names and spit on. Nothing has changed.”

      • And what is calling the Dodgers going to do? It’s already happened. Do you want some kind of public apology from Gonsolin? Would that apology really be worth anything knowing he was forced by the team?

        • Omg…. take a chill pill… this is a costume pertaining to a movie. I’m almost certain it’s not making fun of any one in the service . People need to relax and know THESE ARE COSTUMES

      • I too am a combat veteran from OIF and found no offense… some of my follow devil dogs were injured or have become disabled and they too would tell you to take the sand out of your Labia. It’s damn costume.

  2. And here I thought the outrage would be directed towards NODH’s comment about what Hernandez should go as but the wounded veteran completely went past me. Then again it makes sense considering the Jews who run the world are the reason you and your friends/ loved ones got their legs blown off so perhaps his comment didn’t offend you

  3. Those of you crying about Gonsolin are ridiculous. If you want to get critical about it then I suppose you want to whine about Stripling too dressed as a mentally challenged Gump. Enjoy the moment with these players having innocent fun for the fans and cry about something worthwhile!

  4. Perhaps having seen these costumes worn here by Giants players and the like, I would guess they would have certain ‘comments’ about these costumes of their own. Hopefully the Dodgers will not be made to look foolish by losing this final series of the year against the Giants.

    • AZUL, it must be nice to get dressed up in costume when a long and hard season ends. Now, lets back to work, and go after the title that has eluded us for too, too long. Like you and PD Jr., I want the Dodgers to send Bochy off on a losing note. Go Blue!!!!

  5. They are just freaking costumes. People get over yourselves. You never dressed up as a kid. They are big kids having fun not disrespecting anyone.

  6. He did NOT disrespect anyone, in any way.
    Nor did he make fun or jokes of anyone, especially the disabled.
    He simply dressed up as a MOVIE character from an all American Classic, who happened to be in a wheelchair.
    Lighten up, people, he meant no harm.
    It was just a well done and original costume idea. ???

  7. “However – if you thought that the Dodgers would take this team event that included every staff member – you were wrong.” ???
