Will Smith put up some impressive stats last season, with nine doubles and 15 home runs in 54 games. Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Los Angeles catcher Will Smith is trying to make things right with one of the Dodgers' fans.

On Saturday, Smith homered in the bottom of the ninth to bring the Dodgers within a run of the San Francisco Giants. His home-run ball landed in the left field pavilion and busted up a cardboard cutout of a fan who paid to have his face in the stands.

The fan whose cutout was destroyed by the homer reached out to Smith on Twitter and asked if he would get to keep the ball. Smith apologized for taking the fan’s head off and offered to hook him up.

That’s a pretty cool response from Smith.

Typically, home runs are a good thing, but there could be a complication these days.

The Dodgers lost 5-4 on Saturday despite Smith’s best efforts, but maybe he will have some nice karma on his side now. The 25-year-old put up some impressive stats last season, with nine doubles and 15 home runs in 54 games.
