The Dodgers’ ring ceremony truly had it all. From the players getting their new piece of jewelry, to some very entertaining videos from former and current major-league players.
In case you missed it, here are some of the highlights from today’s ring ceremony.
If we’re going to start anywhere, it has to be with Clayton Kershaw. After a Hall-of-Fame career, he finally won his first championship and earned his first ring. And yes, I did cry when he got it.
Speaking of deserving players, how about the NLCS and World Series MVP Corey Seager?
Oh, how about arguably the best all around player in the game? Here’s Mookie Betts.
Another great moment was when Justin Turner, one of the longest tenured Dodgers, received his.

Wrapping up the players getting their rings, Dave Roberts had a great introduction as Tommy Lasorda’s daughter introduced him.

In addition, players were surprised with special video messages from their favorite players while growing up. Some were simple and brief. Others were thoughtful. Some were just.... well, I don’t know. You probably heard about Bronson Arroyo’s video for Walker Buehler. If you haven’t watched it yet, you’re in for a real treat.
