Justin Turner has essentially been the team’s MVP on the field for the past few years and he’s been an even bigger asset off the field.
Because of this, the Los Angeles City Council is proclaiming January 22, 2019, as ‘Justin Turner Day’ in recognition of his impact on the local community.
The honor is definitely deserved for Turner, as he’s had his hand in a number of charitable events since joining the team in 2014. Just recently, Turner joined Christian Yelich, Mike Moustakas and others in a charity softball game to raise funds for victims of the California wildfires.
Through his foundation that he founded with his wife, Kourtney, the Justin Turner Foundation, he’s helped raise money to support homeless veterans, children (and their families) battling life-altering illnesses and diseases and various youth baseball organizations.
Turner’s Golf Classic is scheduled for January 28 in Thousand Oaks.
