The Dodgers have a lot of musical talent on the team that few know about. They had the band at Spring Training a few years back that consisted of AJ Pollock, Ross Stripling, and David Freese. Those guys were a big hit in the clubhouse.
But don’t worry, AJ Pollock isn’t the last musically inclined player left on the team. Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen can apparently play a pretty mean piano. and he’s slated to do so later this week.
Jansen is joining up with the Angels’ David Fletcher among other Southern California celebrities to take part in a talent show. That talent show will benefit the American Lung Association and will take place on Thursday evening.
Dodgers broadcaster Orel Hershiser also is a part of the show, but his talent remains a mystery according to the LA Times. Whatever he ends up doing, we’re definitely going to need the video clip of both guys.
