Los Angeles Dodgers’ first baseman Freddie Freeman returned to Atlanta Friday night to receive his 2021 world championships ring.
Freeman played for 12 seasons with the Atlanta Braves. He was emotional during the video presentation to the chants of “Freddie, Freddie” from the home crowd. Freeman helped Atlanta bring their first title since 1995. During his tenure in Atlanta, he made five All-Star appearances, won five Silver Sluggers, one Gold Glove, and was named NL MVP in 2020.
The 32-year-old had many people take out their tissues because it was a beautiful moment and tribute for him. This is one of the best moments of the 2022 season. Freeman is an outstanding leader, player, and human being.
