The Los Angeles Dodgers are World Series Champions after defeating the Tampa Bay Rays in game 6 on Tuesday night by a score of 3-1 on FOX.
For this Dodgers team it has been a long time coming and for Major League Baseball it’s mission accomplished on a job well done.
Many would argue that after the Houston Astros cheating scandal, a Los Angeles Championship was really more about making things right. And they did it.
They really were the best team both on paper and in application. They could hit, they could field, and they could pitch. And this championship is a special kind of vindication for Clayton Kershaw and another step towards the Hall Of Fame for him.
Great work Los Angeles and congratulations to your fans.
And we have to talk about the league.
We didn’t think we were going to make it there for a bit.
The Coronavirus pandemic pushed the resources and ingenuity of the league to it’s limits. We had positive tests the first couple of weeks. Games had to be suspended and rescheduled but they didn’t stop finding ways to make it work.
We’ve reflected on how baseball hasn’t been able to keep up with the other sports (story HERE), but this was a great story and everyone involved should be proud of themselves.
