Hugs are a Freeman family tradition.
On Monday night at Dodger Stadium, #HugWatch had a whole new meaning during Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman’s emotional reunion with the Braves before their series opener in Los Angeles. Freeman, of course, spent 13 seasons in Atlanta, winning a World Series (2021), an MVP (2020) and earning five All-Star bids.
But the most awwww-inspiring moment of the night may have belonged to Freeman’s young son Charlie, who spotted Dad’s former teammate, shortstop Dansby Swanson, and made a beeline for a bear hug. This is cute overload.
Did you want to see a different angle of it? Of course you do.
