Clayton Kershaw is Making the Book Tour Rounds

Dodgers Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Clayton Kershaw can add a new line to his resume–author. Kershaw and his wife Ellen have a new book out called “Arise: Live Out Your Faith and Dreams on Whatever Field You Find Yourself,” detailing Kershaw’s baseball career and the couple’s efforts to build an orphanage in Zambia.

“I guess the book is about baseball. It’s about Africa. It’s about Ellen and I,” Kershaw told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune at an Azusa book signing over the weekend.

FYI all you heathen Dodger fans out there, Kershaw is apparently a pretty religious guy.  So be forewarned if you plan on buying the book. As one customer review put it on Amazon, Arise covers the ABC’s: Africa; baseball; and Christ.
