Here's the Sports Illustrated cover from June of 2014: they called this year's World Series three years ago.

Not only that: cover boy George Springer was the World Series MVP...

Major leaguer gets a major surprise from kid with cancer he met a decade ago.

Image

This is Devin Smeltzer, a left-handed pitcher from New Jersey who was selected by the Dodgers in the fifth round in 2016. A promising prospect fighting his way to get to the big leagues, much like many young players in MLB organizations.
But Devin’s road to the major leagues has had a few more obstacles than most.

Image

Devin was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 9 and being from the Philadelphia area, a couple Phillies players took the time out of their schedule to meet Devin and give him some encouraging words.
One of those players was All-Star second baseman Chase Utley, pictured above with Devin.
Well, it turns out Chase and Devin’s bond goes deeper than that nowadays.

Hear about the incredible story of
https://twitter.com/hashtag/Dodgers?src ... wsrc%5Etfw
minor leaguer
https://twitter.com/alka_SMELTZer?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw
who survived cancer at the age of 9 and his special connection with a current Dodger.

This story & more on an all-new
https://twitter.com/hashtag/BackstageDo ... wsrc%5Etfw
tonight after the post-game show.

What an inspiring story from Devin, who used to play baseball in between chemo treatments when he was just 9 years old.
And a great show of class from Chase!

Best of luck to you, Devin. Hope to see you in the bigs one day.

I hate the Dodgers, but I sure do like Justin Turner.

Today he hit one so hard, he almost broke the stadium...

You're welcome.

Also, i'm watching in the ninth inning of game four. It's tied 1-1. I'm actually impressed that Dodger Stadium is still full. Typically, Dodger fans start leaving in the seventh inning. By the ninth - regardless of the score - the place is typically half empty.

The Dodgers better find a way to pull this game out. The difference between being tied 2-2 and being down 3-1 is huge...

BTW: You understand - of course - that the Brewers wear blue too. Right?

^But, Brewers fans don't say "Go Blue", only Dodgers fans do, coach.

Dodgers win!
Kershaw today.
Go Dodger(so MTF can tell the difference)Blue!

I’m too old and wretched. I was thinking somebody from the Brewers should.

No seriously, I don’t advocate paybacks like throwing at people (which will probably happen anyway). Machado made an unsportsmanlike, dangerous play. MLB fined him so that should be it. Unless he does something similar again then the fine and/or suspension should be stiffer.
