Yasiel Puig is a hit at Northeast L.A. Little League field

Dodger right fielder Yasiel Puig paid a surprise, post-season visit to the baseball fields atop Elysian Park on Tuesday afternoon. Players and parents of the Northeast Los Angeles Little League snapped photos  as the Dodger’s newest sports superstar threw a couple of pitches and posed for pictures, some of which ended up on Twitter and turned into YouTube  videos. Here’s a sample:
