The ball soared into the black sky, carried through the thick night air, dropped gently over the center-field fence, and the guy with the flowing red hair and bushy beard stuck out his thick arms as if they were wings.
Today, all of Los Angeles is flying with him.

Welcome to Dodgers legend, Justin Turner.
On the 29th anniversary of Gibson’s celebrated game-winning World Series home run — yeah, the exact date — Turner did a breathtaking imitation Sunday night with a two-out, three-run, ninth-inning blast to give the Dodgers a 4-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series.
