It has been four months since Freddie Freeman put pen to paper on a massive $162 million, six-year deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Be that as it may, it is clear that the former National League MVP still holds the Atlanta Braves in a special place in his heart.

So much has been made about Freemen getting emotional during his first return in Atlanta this season. At this point, however, there's no denying that Freeman's loyalty now lies with the Dodgers. According to the six-time All-Star, he couldn't be more proud to be part of such an esteemed organization:

“I’m so happy to be here, because, man, these guys helped me so much,” Freeman said, via Brook Smith of Dodgers Nation. “It’s emotional because I’ve gone through a lot … and these guys in this clubhouse, man, they’ve surrounded me, the fan base has surrounded me, it’s been just a special start to, I think, a wonderful Dodger career.”

Freeman then went on to say that right now, he's already been able to move on from his time with the Braves — the team that he spent the first 12 years of his career with:

“I got the closure in Atlanta,” he said. “It was like a two-ton boulder off the shoulders. I sent the guys a message, talked to them all, thanked them for sticking with me and helping me get through the closure. Once I got that closure, things have taken off.”

It's never easy to put something so special behind you, and this has been the case for Freddie Freeman and his affinity with the Braves. He's likely going to be a Dodger for the rest of his career, but there's no denying that he'll always call Atlanta home.
