Dodgers News: Dave Roberts Will Do the ‘Freddie Dance’ Under One Condition

Lately, it seems that all the Dodgers do is dance. It’s been a consistent part of their game days over the last handful of weeks. The overall feeling around the clubhouse is overly positive, and it certainly helps when they are winning games.

LA has really stepped it up a notch in the winning department over the month of August, vaulting them toward one of the best records in baseball. They hold a sizable lead in the National League West division and are likely to win the division once again by a large margin.

They have been led by their two superstar players, Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman. Both are viable National League MVP candidates and as the year dwindles down, they are strengthening their resumes.

At this time, Betts may have a slight edge over Freeman. But the veteran infielder is also chasing history as well as the MVP award. He is trying to go for the all-time record for doubles in a season.

Currently, Freeman is at 51 doubles for the year and he’s already set the Dodgers franchise record for most doubles in a season. The MLB record for one season is 67, so he isn’t too far off. He is also close to the National League record of 64 doubles in a season.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts recently said that if Freeman is able to break the all-time record, he would perform the “Freddie Dance”. It’s a dance that Freeman and the entire Dodgers team now do whenever anyone hits a double.

Freeman’s dance debuted a couple months back at an event, and it has stuck with the team. It’s infused a sense of fun into the clubhouse, and fans look forward to it each game.

Hopefully, Freeman is able to break the doubles record, if for no other reason than the fact that fans are able to see their skipper do the dance that has taken the team by storm this season.
