Freddie Freeman Homers on First Pitch of Spring Training

The Los Angeles Dodgers got on the board in the first inning of Friday’s game against the San Diego Padres thanks to a Freddie Freeman opposite-field home run at Camelback Ranch on Friday afternoon.

The home run came on the first pitch he saw of Cactus League play against right-hander Jhony Brito.

Freeman took a fastball on the outside corner and drove it flawlessly over the wall in left-center field — his favorite spot to drive the ball — to give the Dodgers a loud 1-0 lead over the visiting Padres.

Will Smith and Max Muncy followed with loud flyouts to centerfield with Muncy’s landing on the warning track.

Freeman batted .331/.410/.977 last season with 29 home runs and 102 runs batted in.
