Freddie Freeman has a secret to happiness

Dodgers reporter Kirsten Watson interviewed Freddie Freeman before the Dodgers faced the Detroit Tigers on Friday. She asked him about his never-ending love for snickerdoodle cookies, thus bringing a huge smile to his face.

“So, on my previous team (Atlanta Braves), I loved snickerdoodle cookies, and I had snickerdoodle cookies every day. I didn’t know what I was gonna do when I got here,” Freeman said while talking to the reporter.

“But luckily, a guy from the clubhouse named Oscar brought snickerdoodle cookies. They were unbelievable. So I told him that I’m gonna need these cookies every single day. This is how you win in the West. It’s good for your soul, it’s good for your happiness. Eat a cookie, be happy, and hit the ball.”
