Dodgers Thank Joc Pederson in Highlight Video



Saying goodbye to a player that has been a part of your organization for over 10 years is never easy. That is certainly the case with the Dodgers and Joc Pederson this week. After the left-handed bomber officially signed a deal with the Cubs this offseason, he posted an emotional goodbye to the city of Los Angeles on Friday.

The Dodgers followed that goodbye with one of their own. The team drafted Joc out of Palo Alto High School way back in 2010, and he almost didn’t sign. Pederson was enrolled in USC and ready to start playing with their baseball team when LA called and upped their offer to him. 

As a result, Joc became a member of the Dodgers. What followed was a whole bunch of homeruns and big moments from a guy that showed up when it mattered the most. Joctober will always be something fans look back on fondly.

The Dodgers signed Trevor Bauer to a massive deal, but they almost lost out on him to the Mets. Bauer reportedly turned down more guaranteed money to come to play baseball in Los Angeles as New York missed out. 

Dodger Stadium is easily one of the most enjoyable places in the country to take in a baseball game. But as it turns out, it’s also one of the more expensive places to watch a game. See where it ranks among MLB ballparks here
