Ellen Kershaw is the gorgeous wife of Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star pitcher Clayton Kershaw. Ellen and Clayton are high school sweethearts, as they got married after dating at Highland Park High School in Dallas, Texas.
Selected with the seventh overall pick in the 2006 MLB Draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers, Kershaw immediately proved his immense value. After quickly working his way through the Dodgers’ farm system, Kershaw made his major league debut on May 25, 2008.
Clayton’s first MLB start was a promising sign of things to come as Kershaw struck out the first batter he faced and went on to strikeout six more en route to giving up just two runs over six innings. Despite finishing his rookie season with an overall ERA of 4.26, Kershaw was clearly one of the most dynamic pitchers in baseball and would only improve his command as his career progressed.
Kershaw came into the 2009 season ready to prove that his moments of brilliance last season were not simply a succession of mirages. Sure enough, two weeks into the season, Kershaw masterfully struck out 13 batters over seven innings against division rival San Francisco.
He was the youngest Dodger to strike out 13 or more batters since Sandy Koufax in 1955. Although his overall record of 8-8 was unimpressive, his numbers in nearly every other category were spectacular (opposing batting average of .200, allowed only 6.26 hits over nine innings and had an overall ERA of 2.79).
Kershaw led the Los Angeles Dodgers to the 2017 World Series, their first appearance since winning it all in 1988. Kershaw started in the NLCS series-clinching Game 5, leading the Dodgers to a victory over the defending champion Chicago Cubs.
