Rookie TJ Friedl homered in his second Major League at-bat, his first career hit, but it was Mookie Betts who really made his day after hitting that HR.
After Friedl hit a pinch-hit homer in the sixth inning off Tony Gonsolin, Betts turned to the fan who caught the ball and asked for it back. The fan immediately threw it to Betts, who tossed it toward the Reds dugout, so Friedl could keep the memento.
Here is what Friedl said about that incredible gesture from Mookie Betts on Sunday:
“It’s incredible,” Friedl said. “For him to do something like that, it’s definitely just world class out of him. I want to go over there (to the Dodgers clubhouse) and just say thank you in person. Thank you is all I can really say because it means so much.
“I want to find a way to say thank you to him.”
