Since taking over the second base job in the spring, Dee Gordon has been nothing short of spectacular for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Gordon was named a National League All-Star and leads the league in stolen bases. The climb to where he is today was difficult for the 26-year-old, as he spent time between the major and minor leagues over the past few seasons.
His story has become an inspiration and has led him to be a role model for baseball players. Gordon used an off day to visit a summer camp at The Refinery: Baseball and Softball Training Facility to interact with some aspiring ballplayers. The All-Star took questions from children and parents before setting up for an autograph and photo session.
Gordon took questions on his speed, power, foam parties and many other topics. Some of the highlights included Gordon saying he was faster than Billy Hamilton and that he did not start playing baseball until age 16. After the questions, the speedy infielder spent about an hour or so signing autographs and taking photos.
The Dodgers will need Gordon to continue his play and remain a catalyst at the top of the lineup in order to make a deep October run.
