Last week former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier paid a visit to see his old team take on the Chicago Cubs. While the Dodgers got no-hit that night, Ethier still managed to make the game a fun occasion.

Seated in the left field pavilion, Ethier was mic’d up and made sure to have plenty of fun with the fans around him. They didn’t appear to initially recognize him but soon caught on as Cody Bellinger and Joc Pederson looked into the bleachers.

Of course, Ethier did initially struggle to get Bellinger’s attention. After several attempts, a young fan asked, “Does he know you?”

Later in the game, Ethier got the entire pavilion in on his fun, as the entire section yelled “Cody!” after Bellinger caught a fly ball.

After Cubs catcher Wilson Contreras homered to left in the sixth inning, Ethier insisted the fan who caught the ball throw it back on the field. When a kid asked Ethier if that was allowed, he responded, “Shh. Against the Cubs you’re allowed to throw it back.”

Ethier also poked fun at Pederson, playfully asking him, “What you got?”

As the game winded down, Ethier took time to pose for selfies with the fans around him. As one woman handed him a disposable camera, he laughed about it and graciously took the photo.

Ethier’s legacy with Dodgers

Though Ethier hasn’t played for the Dodgers since 2017, he clearly remains a fan favorite.

Originally drafted by the Oakland Athletics, he was traded to the Dodgers in 2005 and spent his entire 11-year Major League career in Los Angeles. Throughout his time in Dodger Blue, Ethier won a Gold Glove, Silver Slugger and was selected to back-to-back All-Star Games in 2010 and 2011.

Ethier’s presence in the Dodgers lineup was always cherished by fans, as he was a part of the exciting outfield that consisted of himself, Matt Kemp and Manny Ramirez. Ethier reachd the postseason seven times in his impressive career.

Ethier’s final time on the field was Game 7 of the 2017 World Series, a game in which he drove in the Dodgers’ only run. Upon his retirement, the Dodgers held a ceremony for him on Aug. 3, 2018.
