The first ever player nominated for a WPW Profile, Clayton Kershaw deserved one of these a long time ago. He is undoubtedly one of the best pitchers in the game. Check these stats:
- Cy Young in 2011 and could have easily beaten RA Dickey if not for Dickey’s large lead in wins
- Led the league in ERA and WHIP twice (’11, ’12)
- Led the league in Hits per 9 three times (’09, ’11, ’12)
- Led the league in Ks and Wins in 2011
Oh and did I mention he’s done all of this in just four full seasons, and he’s only 24 years old.
Kershaw wears a Wilson A2000 B2-B glove, just like you see in the feature. There are Superskin versions of this glove available as well as Kershaw’s traditional leather. Here’s another good look:
On his feet, Kershaw wears a 100% exclusive cleat from Under Armour. It isn’t a future or past model, it is JUST Clayton Kershaw’s cleat. Sad, I know, because it’s pretty sharp-looking, despite the fact we couldn’t find a decent photo of it anywhere. Here’s the closest we’ll get, a photo of Kershaw dealing back in 2011 in what looks like parachute (MC Hammer) pants:
Yes, the pants look ridiculous—but not as ridiculous as these satin clown costumes worn by the Dodgers in the ’40s back in Brooklyn:
Clayton Kershaw has also been seen wearing the Under Armour Thief flip-up sunglasses on off days, which ARE available online.
