So, Mookie Betts was intro’d by Jimmy Rollins. Chase Utley introduced Cody Bellinger. And “Big Papi” David Ortiz did the honors for Julio Urias.
But, let’s get to the hardware …
Of course, each ring featured the Dodgers iconic “L.A.” logo on top — made from 17 genuine blue sapphires.
Notice the baseball diamond design — featuring 4 large diamonds representing each of the bases.
The “infield” is loaded with 29 smaller diamonds, representing the number of home runs hit by the Dodgers during the 2020 postseason.
There are 16 more sapphires and 44 diamonds surrounding the perimeter of the top of the ring.
And, the sides??? You guessed it — MORE DIAMONDS!!
According to MLB, the total number of diamonds just on the sides totals 96!
So, congrats to the champs — the 32-year drought is over! Just make sure to keep those things in a safe!
Oh, and the Dodgers won — all in all, a pretty nice little Friday.
