Former Dodger and 2020 World Series champion Joc Pederson made his return to Dodger Stadium on Thursday night. Undoubtedly, it was an emotional sight — in all the right ways — seeing Joc back at the place he called home for 7 seasons.
The 29-year-old put together a lifetime’s worth of highlights in Dodger blue. And ahead of the game on Thursday, fans at Dodger Stadium were treated to some of those highlights in a lovely package that ran on Dodgervision.
Incredible tribute to @yungjoc650 put together by the Dodgers! Forever a Dodger, forever a World Champion, Joc Pederson!

Along with the video, Pederson received his 2020 World Championship ring in a nice on-field ceremony that featured several of his former teammates.
Joc played 748 career regular season games with the Dodgers, hitting 130 home runs while posting a .806 OPS (on-base plus slugging). However, in the postseason is where he really left his mark. In 6 separate Octobers, known as Joctober around Los Angeles, the outfielder triple slashed .272/.349/.503 with 9 homers and 20 runs batted in. In last year’s World Series, Joc batted .400 with a key home run over the Tampa Bay Rays.
Joc Pederson, you will forever be a fan favorite here at Dodger Stadium!
