Dodgers Joe Kelly wears Mariachi jacket to White House after swapping outfits with fan

I just hope Joe Kelly serenade President Joe Biden with a sweet rendition of “Volver, Volver.”

The Los Angeles Dodgers became the Championship’s first team on Friday visiting the White House since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Dodgers reliever, 33, wore an extra special outfit for the occasion: a mariachi jacket.

On Tuesday, Kelly met a member of a mariachi band at Dodger Stadium who asked the pitcher if he could swap his jersey for the jacket – and Kelly agreed. The sweet exchange was filmed.

People on Twitter loved Kelly’s unique ensemble and quirky encore.

This isn’t the first time Kelly’s antics have made a splash with baseball fans.

In 2014, people were elated when cameras captured Kelly – whose mother is Mexican-American – showing off his salsa moves in the outfield during batting practice when he was with the Cardinals.

And a year ago, he made fun of the Houston Astros with a pouty face which has gone viral.

Kelly’s wife Ashley also appears to have a good sense of humor. She posted a funny video of her husband practicing his throws during the coronavirus pandemic – including throwing wide and smashing one of their windows.

“Are you wondering how the quarantine is going?” She asked jokingly.
