Get ready to feel old
Cody Bellinger is well on his way to winning the National League Rookie of the Year award (and perhaps even contend for NL MVP), after cranking 24 dingers in just 61 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers so far in 2017. Scott Van Pelt had the slugger on SportsCenter with SVP to talk about the incredible start, and to also get the answer for a question he asked Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy about Bellinger last week: Does Bellinger know who Jerry Seinfeld is?
Bellinger said that he knows the name, “but couldn’t put a face to the name.” SVP’s reaction was terrific, and likely similar to yours:
Bellinger was born in 1995, and Seinfeld was on the air from 1989-1998. But it still seems hard to believe that someone could live in America for the last 21 years and not know what Jerry Seinfeld looks like.
