Freddie Freeman Set a New Dodgers Franchise Record on Friday Night

Freddie Freeman is having a historic season for the Los Angeles Dodgers and he has officially etched his name in Dodgers franchise history by breaking the single-season record for doubles.

Freeman has been everything the Dodgers expected and then some when signing the free agent back in 2022.

Freeman’s first year with the Dodgers had an amazing year hitting a .325 average with a .918 OPS. He went into another gear for 2023 currently hitting .337 with a .991 OPS 25 homeruns and now 53 doubles.

Freeman led the league last year with 47 doubles in his first year with the Boys in Blue but now he officially is in Dodgers lore.

Freeman is going to have to step up for the next couple of days as Mookie Betts sustained a foot injury that has taken him out of this weekend series with the Washington Nationals.

The 33 year old veteran has managed to somehow improve every year for the last six or seven years of his career and is well on his way to being a Hall of Famer once he retires but with how he is play now, that might not be soon.

The Dodgers are on their way to being 86-54 and hopefully starting to get back on track after the last 7 games only having 2 wins.

The Dodgers did get J.D. Martinez back from the injured list and has already announced his arrival by hitting a 2-run homerun in the series opener in D.C.

Freeman continues his historic season and with 22 more games in the year, he may have his eyes on the 60 number to accomplish a feat untouched for over 85 years.
