Cody Bellinger Just Robbed Jason Heyward of a Home Run, My Mind is Spinning
I can’t believe what I just saw. These two outfielders, having swapped teams, enmeshed in a crazy moment at Dodger Stadium.
You had Jason Heyward, taking his first at bat against the Cubs since they released him and he signed with the Dodgers. He crushed one to dead center, and it was destined to be a particularly painful two-run home run.
But Cody Bellinger, working in center field for his new team, took the damn thing away:
My jaw dropped. I mean, the play – without any context – was incredible. Fantastic read, timing, and catch. But throw in the fact that it was CODY BELLINGER with the CUBS, robbing JASON HEYWARD with the DODGERS … wow. Baseball is awesome.
