Since signing a Minor League contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers before the 2014 season, Justin Turner has not only gone on to become an All-Star third baseman but also an important figure in the community.

He established the Justin Turner Foundation and regularly works with The Dream Center and Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, and is a supporter of Clayton Kershaw’s Back to School Bash that’s organized by his charity, Kershaw’s Challenge.

Turner’s play on the field and giving nature has cemented him as a beloved figure in the Dodgers organization. And artist Jonas Never, who painted a LeBron James mural that drew national headlines, has now honored Turner.

Never painted a mural of Turner celebrating his walk-off home run hit against the Chicago Cubs in Game 2 of the 2017 National League Championship Series. Turner shared a video of his visit, which was captured by SportsNet LA cameras for “Backstage: Dodgers.”

Turner went 5-for-14 with three runs scored, two home runs and six RBI in the 2017 NLCS, which the Dodgers won in five games.

His aforementioned game-winning home run came on the 29th anniversary of Kirk Gibon’s walk-off homer in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. Turner received NLCS co-MVP honors (shared with Chris Taylor).

For those interested in visiting the mural themselves, it is located at the Baby Blues BBQ location on Sunset Blvd. in Echo Park.
