LA Dodgers Clinch NL West, Celebrate By Crashing Arizona's Pool

Last night, the Dodgers defeated the Arizona Cardinals, 7-6, to clinch the NL West. It was the team's first divisional title since 2009 — and it capped a stunning turnaround that saw LA go from last place in the West to division champs in just three months.

Of course, that calls for a huge celebration. And after the game was over, the Dodgers celebrated on the field, then in the clubhouse. But that still wasn't enough. Since they were playing in Arizona, their options were limited in how to keep the party started.

Until someone realized, "Hey, the Diamondbacks have a pool in the outfield!"

So to celebrate, LA held an impromptu pool party:

Apparently, the Diamondbacks asked the Dodgers not to go back out on the field to celebrate (or, presumably, to take advantage of the pool). But, as you can see, no one was stopping this team — not after the wild season it had!
