Los Angeles Dodgers players speak at the 6th annual Dodgers FanFest.

A record 35,000 fans came out to Dodger Stadium for the 6th annual Dodgers FanFest that featured games, interviews, and autograph sessions with players, alumni and coaches.

Spring Training starts in just two weeks as pitchers and catchers are set to report to Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona on February 13th with the first game scheduled for Feb. 23 against the Chicago White Sox.

Some of the players in attendance were Clayton Kershaw, Chris Taylor, Kenley Jansen, Justin Turner, Julio Urias and Joc Pederson.

"It's awesome to just be around the Dodgers fans," said Jansen. "It gives me extra motivation. I'm going to keep working out more and get ready for the season."

It's always exciting to interact with the fans and see the smiles on their faces," added Chris Taylor who fans affectionately call "CT3." "I always enjoy coming out to this event."

Fans took selfies with their favorite players, purchased merchandise, and played Dodger themed games throughout the day.

Despite the stinging defeat at the hands of the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the World Series, both fans and players alike were ready for the start of the new season as the team looks to capture it's first World Series title in 30 years. 

"The fans in L.A. are amazing," said Turner. "This turnout doesn't surprise me one bit, seeing it packed out like this, and I know they're fired up to see us win one more game next year."
