Fan Runs Onto Field to Hug Dodgers' Cody Bellinger
06/24/2019 8:05am

It was worth it.Those were the final words of a young female Dodger fan as she was being carried off the field by security at Dodger Stadium on Sunday afternoon.The young fan is reportedly a 14-year-old girl who jumped from the stands and onto to the field in the top of the eighth inning just to give Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger a hug.At first I heard the crowd cheering, and I looked to my left and saw this chick recording with her phone. Running, said Bellinger of the moment in question. She came up to me and said I want a hug. She gave me a hug, and then as she gave me a hug a security guard tackled her.According to the Los Angeles Dodgers Fan Code of Conduct, any fan that goes onto the field of play is considered a violation that will result in Immediate ejection and/or arrest and prosecution.Bellinger knows the rules well, so after the girl was tackled he told her:You know youre going to jailAccording to Bellinger, she replied:Yeah, I know. It was worth it.Bellinger went on to say that despite the fact that she believed it was worth it, her parentswho will likely have to pay her fineprobably wouldnt agree with her.Bellinger thought the whole ordeal was funny, and cautioned any future fans out there who are contemplating running on to the field during a game to give him a hug:I dont think my hugs are that special to be honest. So for future reference, my hugs arent that great, so dont rush me on the field.The incident with the young Bellinger fan wasnt the only oddity on the day. Besides the Dodgers making MLB history with their third consecutive win via walk-off home run by a rookie, a different fan was hit in the head by a foul ball earlier in the game.Ironically, the foul ball also came off the bat of Bellinger in the bottom of the first inning, and it struck the young female fan who was sitting in the front row of the field section down the first-base line.It was weird. Its the first time I think Ive hit a fan, said Bellinger. I saw it literally hit her face. That was tough. I just tried to regroup. Im sure it was tough for everyone.The young fan was visibly shaken up, but remained in her seat shortly after the sharp line drive struck her. Dodgers security gave her an ice pack, and Bellinger checked on her between innings.I went over the next half inning just to make sure she was alright, he said. She said she was alright. She gave me a thumbs up. Obviously, its a scary situation.Despite giving Bellinger the thumbs up, the fan later left the game and was taken to a nearby hospital for precautionary reasons. She is expected to make a full recovery.Last year, a 79-year-old woman was killed after being hit in the head by a foul ball at Dodger Stadium. In May, a young girl was struck in the head by a line drive off the bat of Chicago Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. in Houston.The incidents have reignited the discussions around Major League Baseball to extend the safety netting in the lower seats. Many players and teams believe extending the safety netting all the way to the foul pole in all 30 stadiums is the next step towards fan safety.I would assume, that would be a smart decision, said Bellinger of extending the netting. Just to protect those people in the front row who dont have enough reaction time. Its a scary situation.NOTE: If you cant see the tweets embedded in the story, scroll down and select View on NBC Southern California below.Photo Credit: Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

Buehler Makes History in Dodgers Dramatic Walk-Off Win
06/22/2019 1:17am

On Thursday night, Dodgers infielder Matt Beaty was at a hotel, watching the Dodgers square off against Madison Bumgarner and the rival San Francisco Giants.He had just been optioned back to Triple-A Oklahoma City, and was scheduled to jump on the first flight back to Oklahoma in the morning. Report: US Must Communicate Better With Hostage Families Little did he know, that in a little less than 24 hours, he would cap off a historic night for the Dodgers with his first career walk-off home run.You dream about this as a kid, said Beaty. Hitting a walk-off home run, theres probably no better feeling. States Push to Legalize Sports Betting Differs by Region But this story is not all about Beaty, the Dodgers rookie was merely a co-star to Walker Buehlers starring performance on Friday night.Buehler dazzled the sellout Dodger Stadium crowd, putting on a pitching performance the likes that fans in Los Angeles have never seen before, and may never see again. American Airlines CEO Says Politics a Factor in Return of Boeings 737 Max Buehler struck out a career-high 16 batters, and finished off the first complete game of his career.It was a career night for Buehler across the board, as in addition to his personal best strikeout mark, he threw a career-high nine innings, and 111 pitches in the process.Thats checking another box for me, said a soft-spoken Buehler about going the distance. Its important for me. I want to eat innings, I want to throw 200 innings, and thats stuff you have to do. Thanks to Doc Dave Roberts for letting me go back out there. He believed in me.Despite all that, as Buehler walked off the mound in the top of the ninth inning, having struck out Nolan Arenado to complete his career-high, his effort was still in jeopardy as the Dodgers and Rockies were deadlocked at two runs apiece.Thats when Beaty made sure Buehlers historic night had a storybook ending.I was thinking he Walker Buehler had a really special night and it would be really fun to get a win for him, said Beaty as he grabbed his bat and prepared to hit in the bottom of the ninth.With two outs, and Max Muncy on first, Beaty sent a fastball from Jairo Diaz over the center field wall for the game-winning walk-off homer, graciously handing Buehler his eighth win of the season, and the Dodgers MLB-best 52nd on the year.Friday nightsellout crowdwhen the ball went over the fence I just heard the crowd erupt and it was pretty cool, said Beaty of the moment he sent the Ravine into rousing hysteria. It just felt like I was floating around the bases and I was trying to soak it in. My heart hasnt stopped pounding yet.Beatys homer put the exclamation point on a historic night for Buheler. In striking out 16 hitters, the 24-year-old joined an exclusive list of legendary pitchers to don Dodger blue.Buehlers 16 strikeouts are tied for the third most by a pitcher in a single-game in franchise history, behind only Ramon Martinez 18 in 1990, Sandy Koufax 18 in 1959 and 1962, Dazzy Vance 17 in 1925, and Hideo Nomo 17 in 1996.Buehler also became the only Dodgers pitcher in franchise history to record 16 strikeouts without issuing a single walk .Clayton Kershaw famously had 15 strikeouts and no walks during his no-hitter against the Rockies in 2014.After the game, draped in a black hooded sweatshirt and tennis shoes,an expressionless Buehler stood in front of his locker. You would never have known that he had just made history on one of the games greatest stages.As always, he was calm, cool, and collected. He played down his pitching performance as a combination of good calls, bad swings, and throwing strikes, but even the 54,044 in attendance all knew there was much more to it than that. This was special.Ironically, Beatys locker is located right next to Buehlers so as the 26-year-old rookie who was covered in baby powder and gatorade, celebrated the completion of a childhood dream, Buehler was still all business.Any time you do something for the first time its got a little more meaning he finally admitted. But when you throw strikes good things happen.Needless to say, good things happened for both players on Friday.Photo Credit: Harry How/Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.
