The season pass holder makes an effort to be at every home game cheering on his favorite team.

He’s a crowd favorite and is kind of a big deal at Dodger Stadium.

He’s even become a bobblehead.

He’s also an incredible philanthropist.

One of Hiccups’ biggest reasons for this work is to give children a chance to experience what it is like helping those in need.

Thank you, Hiccups. You are making LA better one Sunday at a time. Keep it up!

“Some people are very grateful; some people are embarrassed, but most people that are getting in line to get something for free are in line because there’s a need,” Hiccups Payaso said in an interview. “But you just got to come out here with an open mind and remember that everything we have: a roof, a key to our car or our house, a job. We shouldn’t take for granted because there are some people who don’t have absolutely nothing in the world.”
