Joe Kelly Of The Los Angeles Dodgers Wears A Mariachi Jacket To The White House After Changing Clothes With A Fan.


Let's hope Joe Kelly sang a sweet rendition of "Volver, Volver" to President Joe Biden.

The Los Angeles Dodgers became the first championship team to visit the White House since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and the 33-year-old Dodgers reliever wore a mariachi jacket for the occasion.

Kelly met a member of a mariachi band at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday, who asked the pitcher if he could trade his jersey for the jacket — and Kelly obliged, as captured on camera.

Kelly's unique ensemble and the amusing callback were praised on Twitter.

Sigh.... it's actually a Charro Jacket, and in Mexican culture, it's equivalent to wearing a tuxedo. Love it! — Rigo Pena® (@PenaRigo) July 2, 2021

Kelly's antics have not gone unnoticed by baseball fans in the past.

When cameras caught Kelly – whose mother is Mexican American – showing off his salsa moves in the outfield during batting practice while he was with the Cardinals in 2014, fans were ecstatic.

And a year ago, he made fun of the Houston Astros with a viral pouty face.

It also spawned a viral video.

A mural, too.

Ashley, Kelly's wife, appears to have a good sense of humor as well, as 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 the quarantine is going?” she joked.
