What Justin Turner does for Los Angeles beyond baseball is what makes him an absolute fan favorite. One fan decided to reach out to Justin Turner on Twitter ahead of Dodgers-Giants, to let him know that one of his close friends has about a week to live and wanted to see if he can get a special shout out from one of his favorite players.
Favor to ask @Dodgers @SportsNetLA@redturn2 my buddy Derek is a huge Dodgers fan and Justin Turner is his favorite player; huge fan! He has about a week left to live from terminal cancer. Wanted to make an effort and see if Turner could give a shout out to my boy. God bless!
Here is the message above that Justin Turner sent him:
