Dodgers have a new ritual in games: hugs from Albert Pujols

There is no doubt that the arrival of Albert Pujols to Los Angeles Dodgers It came as a surprise at the time but that over the days both parties have shown that it was a correct decision. Beyond what the Dominican and legend of MLB He has given on the pitch, what he gives emotionally is also important. An example of this is that Dodgers players have adapted Pujols’ hugs as a new ritual.

Much curiosity has been caused by the fact that Albert Pujols’ players turn to Albert Pujols in the first instance when they reach the team dugout by hitting a home run or producing a run.

That is why the Los Angeles Times undertook the task of investigating the matter and with information later collected by FanSided it was learned that it is a new Dodgers ritual and that “it has become something important for the team,” according to the Dominican.

Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts stated that Pujols’ arrival in the ninth has been important for what it has brought to the clubhouse and for there to be a greater bond between the elements.

Albert Pujols came to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a surprise last May from the Anaheim Angels. He is currently in the final year of his contract, but he will probably be seen for one more time as a MLB player.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
