Freddie Freeman and his family appear to be enjoying life as part of the Dodgers family. After spending the first 12 years of his big league career in Atlanta, the Orange County native inked a deal to play closer to home. The decision has payed dividends both on the field, and off the field for the Freemans.
On Wednesday night, Freddie’s oldest son Charlie got to throw the ceremonial first pitch before the Dodgers final game of their five-game homestand. It also just so happened to be Freddie’s bobblehead night at Dodger Stadium.
To make the moment even better, none other than Freddie himself was behind home plate to receive the pitch.
It wasn’t the most accurate of first pitch in baseball history, but Charlie showed off his first pitch arm that despite his age, is significantly better than 50 Cent’s and plenty of other celebrities who have had…adventurous first pitches before MLB games.
Freddie wasted no time in impressing Charlie. In his first at-bat, the Dodgers first baseman smacked a single to right field that send his oldest son into a frenzy.
This isn’t Charlie’s first moment in the spotlight either. When the Braves came to town in April, the youngster rushed over to Atlanta shortstop Dansby Swanson for a big hug that sent baseball Twitter into a frenzy.
The Freemans are enjoying their first year with the Dodgers, and luckily for them, Freddie has many more years to come in Dodger blue.
