The Dodgers’ ties to Mexican heritage of course traces back to famed left-hander Fernando Valenzuela. He invigorated the fanbase during his playing days and remains one of the franchise’s most beloved icons.
On the current roster, Julio Urias and Alex Verdugo most prominently represent the Dodgers’ ties to Mexico. Urias was signed out of the country, while Verdugo embraces his father’s Mexican roots.
Verdugo’s walk-up song, “Volver volver” by Vicente Fernández draws swoons from the crowd when played at Dodger Stadium. Verdugo played for Team Mexico in the 2017 World Baseball Classic, and recently hosted the first Viva Los Dodgers event this year.
