For most of the last decade, whenever Kenley Jansen came into a ballgame at Dodger Stadium you heard Tupac blaring on the sound system. “California Love.” Dodgers fans likely often started singing the track to themselves even when Kenley was racking up saves on the road.
But California Love is no more.
“Just a new beginning, man,” Jansen recently told the media. “It’s time to start fresh.”
Sure, Tupac will still be heard at Chavez Ravine, but instead, you’ll be hearing “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” being spun by DJ Severe from the new, state-of-the-art sound system at Dodger Stadium.
Kenley has recorded 315 saves in his illustrious career as a Dodger, tops in franchise history and 23rd most all-time in baseball history. 161 of those have come at home. It’s safe to say that California Love had a good run, but the long-time closer has struggled over the last handful of seasons. So if any little thing can help, let the man do what he wants.
