Outfielder Joc Pederson has been reminiscing about his high school football days on social media, and tweeted the Rams on Thursday about a tryout — similar to what the New York Mets gave
Pederson’s alma mater, Palo Alto High School, chimed in with a photo of its alum during his football-playing days.
The Rams seemed fine with it, but wanted to make sure the Dodgers were giving the green light.
But the Dodgers weren’t buying it.
Pederson was Palo Alto High’s “Male Athlete of the Year” in 2010. At the time of the award, he led in runs, steals, slugging percentage and OBP on the baseball diamond, and team receptions, touchdowns and yards on the football field.
Pederson made some amazing catches this past season so maybe a shot at making the Rams roster isn’t the worst idea Twitter ever pushed.
