The Marlins gave their star shortstop a giant pendant, and his reaction was fantastic
Miami Marlins shortstop Dee Gordon enjoyed a breakout season in 2015, taking home Silver Slugger, Gold Glove and All-Star honors while taking home the National League stolen-base and batting titles.
Gordon was a bright spot in a disappointing season for Miami. For his efforts, team owner Jeffrey Loria presented his star infielder with a gift unlike anything he'd ever seen.
The gigantic pendant lists all Gordon's accomplishments from the 2015 campaign, highlighted by his league-leading .333 batting average.
The gift was a great gesture. But Gordon's reaction to receiving it stole the show.
Upon opening the box, Gordon can't believe his eyes. After thanking his owner, he tells his "I mean, the contract was enough, though," referring to the $50 million extension he signed over the winter.
After examining the giant creation for a few minutes, he asks, "Can I go show my teammates?" To which his owner responds, "It's yours, you can do whatever you want with it."
From an owner with a particularly iffy reputation, this was a pretty cool thing for Loria to do.
