BTS star Yoongi took in a Dodgers game in a Hyun-Jin Ryu jersey
Celebrity sightings in Los Angeles are nothing new. It's not rare to wait in line at the trendy coffee shop down the street and see somebody from that one show you heard about or that band you saw last week at Coachella.

All in all, a pretty eventful night in Los Angeles.
And to cap it all off, Ryu met the pop star after the game, as well.

Adrian Garro joined MLB.com in 2016. Throughout his travels, both Bartolo Colon and Vin Scully have placed their hands on his shoulders. Not at the same time, though. That'd be amazing.
