Dodgers News: Freddie Freeman’s Favorite Player Is Probably Yours Too

Freddie Freeman and his family had a busy day on Monday, making stops at two Los Angeles-area schools as part of the Dodgers Love LA Community Tour. The Freemans first visited Solano Avenue Elementary School just a few blocks northeast of Dodger Stadium, then they headed a few miles southeast to Garfield High School in East L.A.

While visiting Solano Elementary, Freeman had exactly the kind of endearing moment with a student that you would expect from Freddie Freeman. A young student told Freeman, “I like Mookie Betts, my favorite player.”

Freeman’s response was perfect: “Mine too.”

It’s been well-documented that Freeman and Betts developed a bond pretty quickly upon becoming teammates. Both Dodgers stars believe they are better ballplayers because of what they’ve learned from each other. And everyone loves Mookie Betts because, after all, what’s not to love?

It also doesn’t hurt that of Freeman’s 74 RBIs this season, 19 of them have driven in Betts. That’s the most Freddie has driven in anyone this year, with Gavin Lux in second with 17 and Freeman driving in himself with home runs 16 times.

A fellow former MVP who spends most of his time getting on base so you can drive him in, and he also happens to be maybe the most likable player in baseball?

Yeah, it’s no surprise Mookie is Freddie’s favorite player.
