Clayton Kershaw, isn’t the only Dodger pitcher with a heart of gold. Dodger’s starting pitcher Chad Billingsley made his annual visit to the UCLA Children’s hospital the other day to spend some time with the kids. Every year after the season ends, Bills comes down to the UCLA Children’s Hopsital to help out, donate money, spread gifts, and spend some time with the kids. It’s heartwarming to see all of the kid’s faces light up as soon as Bills enters their rooms. Most of the kids at the hospital are Dodger fans, and some are even big Billingsley fans. One kid had drawn a picture for Bills. In another scene, Bills makes a young cancer patient smile by switching hats with him. Bills handed out gifts to the kids, signed autographs, took pictures, and generally spread good cheer to all of the young patients.
