DBacks’ Bloomquist, Derek Hall Upset With Dodgers Pool Celebration

After the Dodgers clinched the NL West and celebrated in the clubhouse with beer and champagne, they took things a step further by racing out to right field and jumping in the pool.

Carl Crawford, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Brian Wilson and other Dodgers’ popped champagne and did cannonballs into the pool. However, Willie Bloomquist talked to Tyler Emerick of and voiced his displeasure:

The pool party comes on the heels of the Diamondbacks telling the Dodgers that they’d prefer them not come back onto the field after they’ve left as a way to get fans out of Chase Field.

If it wasn’t clear before, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks have a lot of bad blood; from their brawl earlier in the year to both teams getting warned today after the Dodgers hit five DBack players in the series. It sounds like there will be backlash from the DBack players and members of the organization, but how about not letting the Dodgers win on your turf?

Diamondbacks CEO Derek Hall weighed in on the pool party too according to Zach Buchanan of

I could call it disrespectful and classless, but they don’t have a beautiful pool at their old park and must have really wanted to see what one was like.

A shot at Dodger Stadium? Wow. It sounds like the Dodgers-Diamondbacks rivalry is just getting started as the two teams will have to wait until next season before getting things squared away.


In case you missed it, here’s the Dodgers pool celebration, PLUS Yasiel Puig’s celebration dance off!

  1. Hall is a former Dodger executive. If he didn’t like Dodger Stadium what did he do about it while he was helping to run the place? Tell your AZ players not to be clowns, so we don’t have to brawl on you and celebrate with a pool party in your face. Trading that dork, Ian Kennedy, was a good start toward earning our respect. Get rid of Parra too! Go Dodgers!

  2. Disrespctful? Probably. But it isn’t as if the Diamondbacks were never disrespectful as a team to the obviously superior LA club. I would have much preferred that the Dodgers rushed into the clubhouse, packed their stuff, and got out of town and issued a statement saying they preferred not to celebrate in Arizona and not to spend another dime there unless absolutely necessary, shaking the dust from their feet. Eat it, Phoenix.

  3. Much rather see a game in beautiful Dodger Stadium than an air conditioned shopping mall

  4. Is this some kind of a joke? They are upset about this? Maybe they are just frustrated because they lost a huge lead, and ended up losing the division. As for that old stadium comment, Dodger stadium is a landmark, beautiful with amazing history. Oh, and we are allowed to wear clothing from any team we want, anywhere we want in the stands. Screw you, Derek Hall. Enjoy October!

  5. This “rivalry” is why the D-Bags will be enjoying the playoffs from their flat screens. They spent the entire year with an eye on their game and an eye on the Dodgers while the Dodgers showed up to play. Win or loss they showed up to play their games and kept their minds on that. Arizona… well the opinions by those people just keep coming. I guess they still haven’t learned anything.

  6. Beautifully written. Can’t knock a team for celebrating. Did they really expect the Dodgers to leave quietly…? Only in AZ

  7. Haters gonna hate….before you whine, check out the scoreboard and most importantly, the standings in the division….enjoy your tee times!

  8. Ian Kennedy head hunts Puig and Greinke but jumping in the pool is classless? Arizona will have a long off season to think about that.

  9. Boo Hoo! If the D-backs didn’t want anyone else partying in their pool, why didn’t they win it? Classless only because it wasn’t THEM. Boo Hoo!!! Oh, and the Dodgers at least respected Arizona’s wish for them not to celebrate on the “field.” The pool isn’t the field, is it? 🙂

  10. Telling the Dodgers not to celebrate is like telling a starving bear that has been sleeping all winter not to eat. It’s just not possible!! That’s the part that’s disrespectful. Any team that wins should be able to celebrate wherever they are. I’ve been a Dodger fan since 1964 and I have never seen such childish jealousy. That’s all you can call it. This is my house and you can’t have fun if I’m not having fun??? It’s not about Arizona, it’s about one of the best comebacks in Baseball history!!!!!
