This is a big deal

31 Oct

I was really glad to see that Dodgers ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw was named the 2012 recipient of the Roberto Clemente Award. It’s a tremendous honor given annually to baseball’s top humanitarian.

Here is the Dodgers’ press release…

Dodger pitcher and 2011 Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw was named the recipient of the 2012 Roberto Clemente Award on Sunday. The award recognizes a Major League Baseball player who best represents the game through positive contributions on and off the field.

Kershaw and wife Ellen founded Kershaw’s Challenge, a charitable organization that gives back to at-risk children and communities in need and provides assistance to organizations like “Arise Africa” where the Kershaws built and sustain an orphanage in Zambia.
