It started with the sport’s best pitcher, Clayton Kershaw, crying in the dugout with A.J. Ellis, his teammate and favorite catcher, upon learning the news that Ellis had been traded to the Phillies. Why the Dodgers chose to not more personally and directly alert Kershaw, we’ll never understand.
Then, with two outs in the ninth inning of that night’s game against arch-rivals the Giants, Dodgers shortsop Corey Seager, on his bobblehead night, broke up a no-hitter about to be notched by Matt Moore. There’s (usually) no crying in baseball, but Moore would have been entirely forgiven if he had also shed tears.
