Danny DeVito Dances, Makes Baseball Twin Nick Punto’s Night During Dodger Victory

The Los Angeles Dodgers kicked butt again Monday night, but it was the fans who ended up the real winners.

At the behest of outfielder Skip Schumaker, who in the past had jokingly compared teammate Nick Punto to DeVito due to his shorter-than-some stature, DeVito good-naturedly donned a No. 7 Punto jersey during Monday’s game.

Which would have just been a nice gesture on its own, but Punto actually homered in the seventh inning, prompting a celebratory fist-pump-for-the-ages from DeVito, who was sitting right behind the Dodgers’ dugout. (And, at times, he was hanging out in the dugout, as some VIPs get to do.)

Punto got a pair of high-fives from the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star after crossing home plate, and DeVito also later joined the veteran utility player during his post-game interview on the field.

“What a night,” Punto agreed when asked about hitting his second home run of the season in front of his famous new fan. “Danny DeVito, Batman Returns…he’s a beauty.”

Again, no Katherine Webb, but the Emmy winner definitely was a great sport, choosing that moment to join Punto for pics in their matching jerseys and share a big bear hug and a @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
