Balloon crashes Dodgers-Giants opener with no fans in attendance

Balloon crashes Dodgers-Giants Opening Day 7/24/2020

A balloon landed on the infield at Dodger Stadium during Thursday night's Opening Day game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and visiting San Francisco Giants. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal, but given that there were no fans in the stands, it was extremely bizarre.

It happened in the bottom of the eighth inning with no outs and Cody Bellinger at the plate. The balloon floated down from the air and landed on the dirt of the infield. A Dodgers ball boy named Branden came out to take away the balloon.

It looks like the source of the balloon was tracked down, as celebrity stylist Chaz Dean was celebrating his birthday when one of the balloons floated away. Based on his picture of the floating balloon, it matches the one that crashed the Dodgers game.
