Magic: Dodgers are going to win the World Series (0:19)

Magic Johnson, part owner of the Dodgers, says they are going to win the World Series this year. (0:19)

Thursday night marked the fifth annual Kershaw's Ping Pong 4 Purpose charity event. Although an injury kept Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw sidelined for a second straight year, that didn't mean the event wasn't as lively as ever.

Whether it was Magic Johnson predicting the 2017 Dodgers to win the World Series, or Kershaw donning some flashy socks, ESPN was on hand to capture the scene at Dodger Stadium.
