Colorado Rockies shortstop José Iglesias, a former member of the Boston Red Sox, became visibly emotional Friday after slapping a second-inning single against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Coors Field.

It was the first hit by Iglesias since the recent death of his father. The Rockies shared the video while noting how Iglesias’ father watched every at bat of his career.

In a show of sportsmanship, Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman embraced Iglesias at the bag.

Iglesias, who had two different stints in Boston (2011-12, 2021), signed with the Rockies this offseason.
