Here ar some pictures and video from the Dodgers’ pennant-winning celebration on Thursday night at Wrigley Field.
“I don’t remember the last time the Dodgers got to the World Series because I wasn’t even born yet,” said Kiké Hernandez, who clubbed three home runs and drove in seven in the pennant-clinching Game 5. Then he invoked thoughts similar to those of Kirk Gibson, 29 years ago:

“We’re in the f**king World Series,” Hernandez continued. “But guess what? We’ve got four f**king games to go!”
NLCS co-MVP Justin Turner might have had the still show of the night. Shawshankian, even.
C. Kershaw went w/o googles postgame. "You gotta let it burn. Goggles are for the weak. You never know when you’re going to do this again."— James Wagner (@ByJamesWagner) October 20, 2017

Cody Bellinger’s mom called this World Series trip in April, when her son was called up:
In four years has a Bellinger worn number 35 in the majors. And in all four years that team has gone the World Series. Cody’s father Clay wore 35 in 1999 and 2000 with the Yankees, who won the World Series, then again in 2002 with the Angels, who also won the World Series, and now Cody in 2017.
Clay Bellinger wore No. 12 with the 2001 Yankees after Mike Mussina was signed. That team lost the World Series.
