Tonight is a huge night at Dodger Stadium for so many reasons.
It is Jackie Robinson Robinson Day where the Dodgers will honor him for breaking the color barrier and being the first African American to start in a MLB game. The Dodgers also officially activated Clayton Kershaw and will be making his first start of the season after being put on the 10-day IL. Lastly, Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, Alex Wood, and Kyle Farmer will all be making their return to Dodger stadium tonight.
Prior to the game, Yasiel Puig was scheduled for a press conference that he was almost 70 minutes late to. During that time, manager Dave Roberts handed out the NL Championship rings to Matt Kemp, Alex Wood, and Kyle Farmer. Puig was asked about his decision not to show up for that moment.
"You can give it to me or put it in my locker."
Towards the end of the press conference, Kenley Jansen decided to come in and crash the party by throwing a football at Puig while he was talking. Puig went on to talk about how Cody Bellinger and Kenley Jansen where some of the best friends he had on the team.
