Cody Bellinger is the 2017 NL Rookie of the Year (Unanimous)

The only guy who was possibly qualified to win National League Rookie of the Year took home the hardware tonight.

Cody Bellinger – our dad’s favorite Dodger, and growing quickly into one of ours – gives the Dodgers yet another Rookie of the Year in their storied history and their second consecutive year having a unanimous selection win the award (Corey Seager in 2016).

Bellinger didn’t get the call up from the minors until almost June; yet he hit 39 home runs, knocked in 97, stole 10 bags, hit .267 and compiled a .933 OPS on the season.

The guy was hitting three and four hole as a 22 year old for a lot of the playoffs. The Dodgers wouldn’t have been where they got to be without him. He’s one of the select few we can’t wait to watch in 2018.
