Cody Bellinger has rightfully earned the honor of being a fan-favorite on the Los Angeles Dodgers and has produced some very memorable moments.
Cody Bellinger has accomplished more in three seasons than most players accomplish in their entire careers. Bellinger is a two-time all-star, Rookie of the Year, Silver Slugger, Gold Glover and and MVP.
As a result of all this success, Bellinger has not only become a fan-favorite on the Los Angeles Dodgers but is one of the most popular and marketable players in the entire league. Bellinger is a full-blown superstar, in every respect.
Bellinger has given us countless memorable moments in just three seasons with the Dodgers, so it is crazy to imagine what he could do throughout the rest of his career. Here are the five most memorable moments Bellinger has given us thus far.
5. Throw nabs Ian Kinsler in the 10th
The only game that the Los Angeles Dodgers won in the 2018 World Series took 18 innings and will always be remembered for Max Muncy‘s walk-off home run. However, that home run would have never happened if it was not for Bellinger’s dart at home plate to nab Ian Kinsler in the 10th inning.
After being put in as a pinch-runner, Kinsler was arguably picked off at first (replay could not find enough evidence to overturn the call), overslid at third base and was almost tagged out and then was hosed at home plate.
With one out in the 10th, Bellinger threw a dart to Austin Barnes, who easily slapped the tag on Kinsler on a play that ended up not being close at all. Bellinger’s throw extended the game, gave the Dodgers the eventual win and could have shifted the entire series, if, ya know, the Dodgers didn’t take Rich Hill out in Game 4.
