Dodgers Top 10 Home Runs of the Decade Ranked By MLB

Without question, nothing in the game of baseball creates a memory like a home run. Therefore, MLB.com arrives right on time with a feature by Ken Gurnick that examines the top-10 Los Angeles Dodgers’ home runs of the past decade.

Obviously, the home runs that make number one and two are probably the most epic if you aren’t being biased.

However, I have a biased one that is listed at number seven.

Indeed – it’s the home run that helped put the Dodgers in the 2018 World Series – and made Cody Bellinger the youngest NLCS MVP ever. Let’s bring back Jhoulys Chacin for just a moment in time.

Notably, the home run Bellinger hit in game 163 of that season was a big one that was omitted from the list and perhaps shouldn’t have been.

Equally important, the number one home run of the decade was Max Muncy’s walk-off shot that gave the Dodgers their only win in the 2018 World Series. By comparison, Justin Turner’s 2017 NLCS walk-off against the Chicago Cubs on the anniversary of Kirk Gibson’s famous 1988 checks in at number two.

Between the pair, I can’t break the tie. And with many of these, I remember exactly where I was and who I was with to see the home run hit.

Of course, the Uribear blast and Andrew Toles’ Coors Field granny are both equally special to me. Overall, this is a great walk down memory lane; and we leave it up to you to decide which ones meant the most to you and why.

There’s no greater feeling than when a Dodger puts one in the stands. Props to MLB.com for throwing it back and bringing back some great memories. Finally, does time fly or what?
