The Los Angeles Dodgers visited the White House last week, and one of the stars on social media that day was was Joe Kelly.
Kelly arrived in a mariachi jacket that he got from mariachi player Grover Castro Tiburcio who exchanged his jacket for a Joe Kelly jacket. Kelly explained why he wanted the mariachi jacket:
“It’s one of those things where I thought in my head, ‘These things are sweet.’ I asked if they wanted to trade, and at the moment I don’t think any of them really wanted to. They’re beautiful pieces of work with outstanding embroidery on it, outstanding fabric on it. I didn’t get a glimpse of it up close until I actually made the trade. After I made the trade, I wasn’t planning on wearing it to the White House. I totally forgot we were even going to the White House.
One fan decided he loved this outfit so much that he created a bobblehead out of it. A fan by the name of Alberto Vallin on Facebook dropped the photo above in the group and showed off some custom made bobbleheads.
It is safe to say Joe Kelly has been a star on and off the field the past month and a half.
