Here’s just hoping Joe Kelly serenaded President Joe Biden with a sweet rendition of “Volver, Volver.”
The Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday became the first championship team to visit the White House since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the 33-year-old Dodgers reliever wore an extra special outfit for the occasion: a mariachi jacket.
On Tuesday, Kelly met a member of a mariachi band at Dodger Stadium who asked the pitcher if he could trade his jersey for the jacket — and Kelly obliged. The sweet exchange was caught on camera.
People on Twitter loved Kelly’s unique ensemble and the quirky callback.
In 2014, people were delighted when cameras caught Kelly — whose mother is Mexican American — showing off his salsa moves in the outfield during batting practice when he was with the Cardinals.
And a year ago, he mocked the Houston Astros with a pouty face that went viral.
Kelly’s wife, Ashley, also seems to have a good sense of humor. She posted a funny video of her husband practicing his throws during the coronavirus pandemic — including throwing wide and breaking one of their windows.
“Wondering how quarantine is going?” she asked jokingly.
