Watch: Former Dodgers All-Star Eric Gagne Makes a Slight Comeback



At a time when we’re all fiending for baseball (and definitely our Dodgers), the content is definitely getting harder to come by. The last time the Dodgers suited up was on March 11 — thankfully they took down the Brewers at Camelback Ranch by a final of 4-1. 

Months have past and unless you’re a real night owl and taking in some KBO action, you’ve been caught in the web of throwback videos. However, there is one group that’s putting in work to get us some baseball content. Entertaining content to boot.

Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer and his media company Momentum have been recently producing live batting practice videos. It started with Bauer facing teammate Derek Dietrich but has evolved to include more batters and pitchers.

And that’s where we come in.

Late last week, Dodgers legend Eric Gagne joined in on the fun tossing to a few batters out in the desert known as Arizona.

The 44-year-old former closer last pitched in the big leagues in 2008 for Milwaukee. He last pitched for the Dodgers in 2006, save for a brief appearance in 2010 as a minor league free agent in spring training.

At first glance you really want to say “man, he’s still got it!” Then he bounces his first pitch. Still, the 2003 NL Cy Young award winner looks to be having fun being back on the mound. Perhaps one key element missing in all of this is his signature walkout music “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses.
