Matt Kemp LAD Home Run leaderboard

If some fans are wondering why so many Dodger fan have embraced the return of Matt Kemp they may simply need to look toward the LAD Home Run Leaderboard. Matt Kemp has hit more home runs than any LAD outfielder in history. With his home run last night he homered for the first time at Dodger stadium since September of 2014.  Andre Ethier was here for three extra years from 2014 – 2017 but only managed to hit seventeen home runs and thus remained behind Mondesi, Guerrero, and the leader Matt Kemp.

Matt looks old, but it may just take a pennant race to re-invigorate his broken down body and give him one last hurrah at the stadium he once rocked with his incredible athletic prowness.
