We are currently at the golden age of Dodger baseball. World Series favorites in the past number of years, dominance top to bottom, one World Series title to show for (hopefully another on the way), and nine division titles in the past 10 seasons.
That first division title was special, it had been their first division title since 2009 and the first for the Guggenheim ownership. In 2013, LA clinched the division in Arizona against the Diamondbacks and celebrated big time.
Many of the Dodger players jumped over the home run fence and jumped in the pool that is in right-center field at Chase Field.
The Diamondbacks didn’t take too kindly to the Dodgers’ celebratory ways and they’ve done everything they can to prevent that from happening again.
Oddly enough, the D-Backs minor league team, Reno Aces, won the Pacific Coast League championship Friday night in Las Vegas and they celebrated in a similar fashion to the 2013 Dodgers.
So for all the hubbub this year and over the past years about the Dodgers celebrating a division title in the pool at the Diamondbacks’ ballpark, the Diamondbacks’ Triple-A team celebrated a league title by…jumping in the pool at someone else’s ballpark. ? https://t.co/OIOd0AKpTH

I know it’s not exactly the Arizona Diamondbacks, but it is their triple-A affiliate.
Funny how the tables have turned in that regard and people on Twitter noticed.
Hmmm… Diamondbacks have absolutely no ground to talk about the Dodgers doing this now.

Hey, to each their own. Nothing wrong with going all out and celebrating, but it is kind of hypocritical if you ask me.
Everyone knows that Chase Field is considered Dodger Stadium east and the Dodgers stamped it with their division celebration in 2013.
The Dodgers are far beyond those types of antics by now, however, just don’t be mad when an opposing team wants to celebrate big in your stadium.
It is what it is.
