SOUTH GATE (CBSLA) — Former South Gate police Capt. Keith Hupp has done this before.
The diehard Dodgers fan who caught Justin Turner’s dramatic walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 2 of the National League Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs says it may be his biggest catch so far – and that’s saying something.
“It was exciting; the Dodgers are having a historic year,” Hupp said. “Justin Turner’s having a fantastic year, the Dodgers are on the verge of going to the World Series. So for a Dodger fan and for someone who goes to all the games, it was really exciting.”
Turner and Hupp are expected to make some sort of trade for the ball.
Hupp, 54, caught Turner’s second homer of the postseason that ended another dramatic night for the Dodgers, who remained unbeaten in these playoffs and moved within two wins of their first World Series appearance since 1988.
