Dodgers’ Kenley Jansen Displays New Ring, Recalls the “Blood, Sweat and Tears” Into the Making of the Ring

Kenley Jansen #74 of the Los Angeles Dodgers delivers to home plate during the eighth inning against the Colorado Rockies

Los Angeles Dodgers star Kenley Jansen got his first MLB World Series Championship after winning the 2020 world series. It is truly a memorable day for the Jansen and Dodgers as the team won the world series after 32 years.

After snapping the organization’s 32-year championship drought, the LA Dodgers celebrated their 2020 World Series rings ceremony on Friday before the home opening game against Washington Nationals. And after a year without fans in the stadium, the team celebrated with limited attendance maintaining the COVID-19 protocols.

Further, Dodger players were wearing special jerseys made for the event. Players were called out in alphabetical order to receive the rings. The event was a triumphant moment for all the players, and Kenley Jansen took to Twitter to express his feelings.

Later, Jansen posted a few photos of him with the rings and memorized his journey with the team. He wrote, “A lot of blood, sweat, and tears over the last 10+ years went into the making of this ring. Felt so good to put it on…now it’s time for another one! Let’s go @Dodgers!!!!”

Kenley Jansen at Dodgers

Jansen made his Major League debut with the Dodgers on July 24, 2010. He tossed a perfect inning while striking out two against the New York Mets in his debut game. After that, Jansen has been going through an eventful career with the team.

Although the 2020 major league title is his only championship win, he has been serving as the Dodgers’ closer since 2012. He led the National League (NL) in saves in 2017. Over the span of ten years, the Dodgers pitcher won three MLB All-Star awards and two NL Reliever of the Year. 

Dodgers opened their 2021 season with the expectation to earn a consecutive title. But the team did not use the longtime closer, Kenley Jansen, in the season-opening game as they have an extended series coming up, and the team will use Jansen on that.
