If you’ve ever watched new Dodgers co-co-ace (that’s what you do when there’s three of them) Max Scherzer, you know him by his intense demeanor and his remarkable pitch mix.

You also have probably noticed the flame-throwing righty has a rather intense and unique look, featuring two different-colored eyes. He’s the highest-profile baseball player with heterochromia in the history of the game. That we can guarantee.

But did you know he’s not the only one in his family with this distinct feature?

Turns out, Scherzer picks his pooches in an effort to help them fit in with a loving crew that’ll help them feel comfortable. And, presumably like the rest of Dodgers Nation, we’re only just learning this now!

Yes, there are photos of Max, his lovely wife Erica, and their two dogs, both of whom also have two different-colored eyes.

Yes, you can see them now.

Dodgers Max Scherzer dog history

Can we please include that in every article we write from hereon out?

What? I’m the boss, and we absolutely can? Great to hear it.

For those wondering, the Scherzer family actually has four adopted dogs, but you’re looking at Bo and Rafi here, who share a special affliction with the family’s patriarch. Bo’s extra unique; while Rafi has two different-colored eyes, each one of Bo’s eyes features a mix of two colors. Chew on THAT.

The Scherzer family is so dedicated to adoption, in fact, that after departing Washington, DC unexpectedly a few months early at this year’s deadline, they’ve decided to chip in to the cause.

Now through Aug. 10, Max and Erica will continue to cover adoption fees at DC’s local animal rescue, the Humane Rescue Alliance, as a way to give back.

Assessing the production Mad Max gave Washington over the course of his seven-year deal, we might already have been looking at the greatest long-term contract in MLB history, even before any dog-related bonuses were factored in.

Dodgers fans, we’ve got ourselves a good one, and he brings with him more than his share of good boys.
