Dodgers good guy Justin Turner is featured on the latest episode of Little Big Shots with an adorable young fan who knows everything about the Dodgers.
Imagine being six years old and knowing everything about the Los Angeles Dodgers. Imagine your favorite player is Justin Turner. Imagine you have never gone to Dodger Stadium before, and then you get your first chance on a magical occasion. Does this sound like something you wished for as a young fan? Maybe insert a different favorite player from the era when you grew up?
On the NBC hit show Little Big Shots, a young Dodger fan with encyclopedic knowledge of the team had his dream come true in a trip to Dodger Stadium where he met third baseman Justin Turner.
Turner quizzed little Dylan on his Dodger facts and took him on a tour of the stadium. They got to see the team’s Glove Glove Awards, World Series trophies, and MVP plaques.
Dylan then took the field to pretend to hit a home run on the same diamond where he idolizes his favorite Dodgers.

Little Big Shots is currently airing in its fourth season. It was co-created and produced by comedians Steve Harvey and Ellen DeGeneres. The premise of the show is to showcase children with unique talents and engaging personalities.
Turner is a perfect pick to be featured alongside Dylan on the show. The Dodger infielder is one of the most charitable players in baseball. He started the Justin Turner Foundation in 2016 with his wife, Kourtney, to help people in need. During the coronavirus pandemic, the couple has been donating food to the LA Dream Center, making sure to support local businesses in the process.
