Got tissues nearby? Better go grab ’em … ’cause Cody Bellinger started crying after winning the NL MVP award Thursday — and he says it’s all ’cause of a celebration hug with his dad!!!
“That’s what made me emotional right there for sure,” Bellinger said.
The LA Dodgers superstar had an unbelievable year in 2019 … hitting 47 home runs with 115 RBIs while batting .305 — and he earned the MVP award over Christian Yelich because of it.
When MLB Network had Cody on shortly after to talk about the honor … the outfielder couldn’t hide his emotions — saying an embrace with his pops made him break down.
“It’s what you dream of, man,” Bellinger said.
Of course, Cody and his dad, Clay, are SUPER tight … Poppa Bellinger is a former MLB player who Cody has often credited for his ultra-successful baseball career.
Cody also had a bunch of other family and friends join him for the celebration … and he called the whole moment, “pretty cool.”
“It’s absolutely incredible,” Bellinger said … “A little emotional. So, it’s pretty cool.”
WE’RE NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING!!!
