Like many professional sports teams, the Los Angeles Dodgers’ home games regularly feature the “kiss cam” and “fan cam” during the occasional lull in action. Saturday’s fan cam action took a hilarious twist during the seventh inning when an elderly woman saw herself on camera and began dancing.
Things began innocently enough with some garden-variety hip thrusts, fists pumps and arm waving. The crowd cheered her on, and then, for reasons unknown, she lifted her blue top and flashed a white bra to all 42,225 attendees at the game. The crowd erupted into cheers and laughs, and they weren’t the only ones who noticed.
“The crew working the stadium video room, where the camera shots are handled, broke out in laughter,” reported a local CBS affiliate.
The Dodgers went on to beat the Kansas City Royals 5-4 behind Cody Bellinger’s walk-off walk. Some fans and Twitter users credited the woman with powering the Dodgers to a come from behind win, referring to her as the “Rally Granny.” She was also seen greeting and giving fans high-fives.

It’s possible that the heat was a factor for the woman, as temperatures reached a record 98 degrees Saturday afternoon in Downtown Los Angeles. That mark broke a 131-year-year old record for the previous high of 95 degrees.
With the win the Dodgers became the first team in Major League Baseball to reach 60-wins this season. But all of that took a backseat to the Rally Granny's seventh inning showcase.
