Turner wanted to make a trade. It could be anything, he said. Hupp hesitated.“It’s hard for me to say in the moment,” he replied. “It’s just sometimes a little hard,” Keith Hupp said. “This is a big significant thing for me.”“Me too,” Turner said. Video: Justin Turner’s 3-run walk-off home run extends the Dodgers’ NLCS lead over the Cubs Turner had never ended a game with a home run in his life. In 32 years, 326 days and a lifetime’s worth of baseball games, he’d never experienced anything like Game 2 of the National League Championship Series, when his three-run home run against Chicago Cubs pitcher John Lackey capped the Dodgers’ 4-1 win.Hupp had seen this before. He brought his glove for a reason.Last Oct. 18, he caught Turner’s home run in Game 3 of the NLCS. That one, a sixth-inning moonshot against Jake Arrieta, landed nearly in the same spot as this one.“That one was on the railing,” Hupp said. “This one was over the batter’s eye.”Hupp said he moved about 12-15 feet to his left to catch Turner’s homer Sunday. He stretched out his left hand, extending a raggedy black leather glove over the black tarp covering the seats closest to dead-center field approximately 416 feet from home plate.“I’m a lefty,” Hupp said. “I’ve dislocated my right shoulder so many times, I had to resort to my son’s glove on my left hand. So the last five or six home run balls I’ve caught, I’ve caught with my left hand.” Miller: Justin Turner goes Kirk Gibson and makes everything right again Justin Turner’s 3-run walk-off homer gives Dodgers 2-0 NLCS lead LOS ANGELES — Justin Turner and Keith Hupp met in a private hallway inside Dodger Stadium on Sunday night.Hupp, a retired police officer wearing a Chase Utley jersey, was holding the baseball Turner used to end Game 2 of the National League Championship Series just a few minutes earlier.

A uniformed police officer, who escorted Hupp out of the bleachers, through the concrete pavilion, through the Dodgers’ bullpen and into the hallway, smiled and clapped. He volunteered to photograph the fan and the ballplayer together using Hupp’s smartphone.Hupp, 54, retired from the South Gate Police Department in 2013 after attaining the rank of captain. He lives in San Gabriel, the city where he was born and raised. A Dodger fan since birth and a season-ticket holder for 10 years, Sunday was the rare occasion when he was able to attend a game with his son, 29-year-old Lindley.Lindley Hupp gathered in close for a photograph with Turner and his father. Within a minute, Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen was in the hallway too, posing for photographs with the group.The terms of the exchange were not yet clear. The story behind Yasiel Puig’s catchy walk-up track ‘Wild Horse’ Hupp said he’s caught eight home runs on the fly in his life. He’s got another 16 in his private collection, all obtained one way or another.He was at the game in San Diego on Sept. 3 when Cody Bellinger hit his 36th home run of the season, breaking the Dodgers’ franchise rookie record held by Mike Piazza. The day before, he bought Bellinger’s 35th home run ball off the fan who caught it. He wasn’t sure what to do with those baseballs in the moment, either, but he eventually arranged a trade with the Dodgers for a game-used Bellinger jersey.“It was nice,” Hupp said.By the time he was photographed with Turner in the hallway, Hupp had already posed with the baseball for dozens of awestruck fans with smartphones of their own. He could offer them his image and a small slice of the moment, which electrified the sold-out crowd and gave the Dodgers a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series.For a man with 24 home-run balls in his personal collection, Hupp couldn’t offer much advice.“Being very lucky,” he said. “And having a good glove.” Dodgers’ bullpen dazzles in Games 1 and 2 Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
DUBUQUE — Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer thinks Governor Reynolds isn’t going far enough in restricting the movement of Iowans to address the coronavirus outbreak.The Democrat from Dubuque has sent a letter to the governor, asking her to issue a statewide stay at home order. “Honestly we are past the point where they should be recommendations. They need to be orders, there is a difference between a recommendation and an order. And when you have a stay at home order, that still means folks are able to perform essential services,” she says.Finkenauer says she has been talking with the governor throughout this past week — and decided to send her letter after talking with doctors from Dubuque — who have also sent a letter to the governor. “Urging the governor to do the stay at home order given what they had been seeing on the ground and why they see that they need it. It’s also something that I didn’t take lightly, but have been concerned about how serious some parts of our state may be taking it, Finkenauer says.She says the governor feels the actions the state is taking are enough to slow the spread of COVID-19. “I think that’s okay to disagree — but after (Friday) when I saw two more deaths in my district — I was not going to wait another day before I urged this publicly,” Finkenauer says. “And made sure that folks across my district and across the state knew that I believe that this is warranted.”Finkenauer says she not only represents her district — but on the federal level has to speak for the rest of the nation — as she’s concerned that the national food supply could be hurt. “If our farmers get sick and cannot plant, then there is not going to be corn that is going to be processed in our district. And then on top of that if those workers get sick and then we have other folks that are at General Mills that make cereal, if those folks get sick, what that means. And on top of that, we’ve got again, our grocery store workers who are working their tails off are stocking our shelves. We need to do everything, everything possible to protect that essential workforce,” according to Finkenauer,” according to Finkenauer.Finkenauer says she could not sit back and not say something publicly after seeing the additional deaths in her district.
