Two-time All-Star Andre Ethier helped usher in a new wave of winning for the Dodgers’ organization in the mid-2000s. The outfielder made his debut in LA in 2006 along with fan favorites James Loney, Russell Martin, and Matt Kemp and quickly cemented himself as one of the league’s premiere up and comers.
16 years later, he’s now retired and living the good life with his wife and four kids in Pheonix, Arizona. In recent years, the long-time Dodger has made his presence felt with and around the organization, often featured in media and other projects with the team.
Here in this recent video posted by the Dodgers media team, Andre welcomes fans into his home as part of the YouTube day in the life series.
Right off the bat, Ethier talks about his post-playing life, admitting that back when he was still active, he might have lost a little focus on the little things with family while trying to win a World Series in LA.
Later, we see the 39-year-old take his personal golf cart to the driving range to work on a different swing than the one that hit 162 career homers in the big leagues. We also see the former slugger’s home batting cage, featuring replica Dodger Stadium signage and imagery from famed team photographer Jon Soo Hoo. He also reveals that he’s waiting for the second former teammate Clayton Kershaw retires to add his number 22 to his home wall of retired numbers.
