Yoshinobu Yamamoto is already a proper Los Angeles Dodger.

The new Dodgers pitcher Yamamoto went viral over the weekend for the sick custom glove that he was sporting during a spring training session. Yoshinobu’s glove was all blue and featured a big Dodgers logo running through the back of the webbing. It also featured Japan’s flag and some Japanese characters.

Take a glimpse.

Yamamoto, 25, followed his countryman Shohei Ohtani’s lead by signing with the Dodgers this offseason. He agreed to a monster 12-year, $325 million deal with the team (though Yamamoto also had an interesting second-choice team).

It is unlikely that Yamamoto’s all-blue glove will make its way into any MLB regular season action. But that has to be the best custom mitt since this one from the college baseball ranks.

Dodgers fans! Show everyone who runs LA with this great shirt. You can buy it here.
