Recall the death of Chadwick Boseman at age 43.
On the day of his death, the Dodgers lost in Arlington, in the same ballpark they just advanced to the World Series in. Notice the Dodgers picked up their 52nd win today, a span of 52 days from Boseman’s death.
Of course the Lakers won 52 games in the regular season, and in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, they scored 116 points. Now the Dodgers are in the 116th World Series.
