Dodgers’ Trevor Bauer Pitched With One Eye Closed Just For ‘Fun’

Classic Bauer


March 6, 2021

Trevor Bauer already is doing Trevor Bauer things out in Los Angeles.

The righty pitched in his second Cactus league game since joining the Dodgers a month ago in Saturday’s preseason matchup against the San Diego Padres. And he caught people’s eye in an interesting way.

Bauer was seen pitching with one — yes, one — eye open at times throughout his three-inning outing.

Take a look:

After the game, Bauer shared the motive behind his little stunt.

“I figured if they can?t score off me with one eye open, it?s going to be difficult to score off me with two eyes open,” he told reporters, via “Just having a little bit of fun.”

“… I challenged myself today, too,” he added. “I like making myself uncomfortable and throwing different stuff my way and trying to find a solution for it. I think that?s how you improve. Find a way to make yourself uncomfortable, get comfortable with it, and do it again.”

Classic Bauer.
