Nick Punto is 100 Percent Pure Hustle


There’s a reason why writers trip over themselves to use words like “gritty,” “scrappy” and “hustle” to describe Dodgers’ infielder Nick Punto. Here he is sliding into first base head first … on a clean single to the outfield during Monday night’s 2-1 loss to Arizona.

Way to get that jersey dirty, Nick!

Keep playing the game the right way.
